Trying to be the iron maiden,
Not letting things to matter;
But when even a tiny scratch occurs,
Everything comes down in a shatter.
I always thought that patience was the key,
I hoped happiness would someday knock;
But now that I have the key,
I can't seem to find the lock.
I refused to accept the obvious,
Have been hiding under a husk;
Before I make it to the dawn,
I seem to come across the dusk.
Its like I've been forced to grow up,
Soaking in the things I've been inflicted upon;
When the heart break and pain is over,
The innocence is usually gone.
Can't figure out whats happening and why,
It just seems like a tragic game;
But the worse thing is,
I don't know whom to blame.
I close my eyes and try to forget the agony,
Try to think of all good things to come by;
But when I wake up and see the truth,
Life just seems like a beautiful lie.
