i hooe that the shadowy wings can be seen. any way this kinds came out of the song "shadow of the day" by....can;t remember but when i do i will update. i drew this with prisma pencils and then smoothed things out a bit in corel. and yes i was in one of those places when i drew this. I'm sad, I'm depressed, I'm crazy, repressed, I'm upset, so I cry, Tears flood from my eyes, I know my fear, It always stands near, Forever afraid, My fate has been made. No one knows how I feel inside, My feelings, I eternally hide, When you ask if I'm ok, Don't believe a word I say. The smile you see, It isn't me. The jokes I make, The laughter is fake. The sadness I shawl, Is hidden from you all. There's pain in me, It's dying to be free I don't sleep, I stay up and weep, I don't exist, Possessed by an atheist, Living a lie, I'm just waiting to die, It is all I see, Everyone is my enemy, Blinded by sadness, You all think its madness, I hide the fact, Or else you'll react. The smile you see, It isn't me. The jokes I make, The laughter is fake. The sadness I shawl, Is hidden from you all. There's pain in me, It's dying to be free. So, disturbed I am, Most don't give a damn, Most couldn't care less, If my soul's in a mess, I'm feeling rough, But strangely enough, You still ask, you still say, To check I'm ok, Addictive as drugs, You still give me hugs, It feels like it might, Make me feel alright. The smile you see, This time it's me. The jokes I make, My laughter's not fake. The sadness I shawl, Is open for all. But there's pain in me, Still struggling to be free.
