Nightmare: The Secret Keeper

The Secret

I know, I know; I've asked too much of you already
Up until today I've asked for what I don't deserve

I hope, I hope; you will always be able to put up with me
Because everyone else chooses to ignore my words

So please, please; I want you to take me, and hide me far away
I need you to do this for me; I never, ever want to be found again

Take my will, take my heart, take my tears, take my name
Take my life, take my soul, take my fear, take my pain

Pull me into you, and keep me close to your void of a heart, so I can lose myself
Hold me in your arms, and keep everything in your palms, I yearn to be held

I can no longer stay
So please take me, and hide me before it's too late


The Keeper

I never wanted you to know that I don't care about myself anymore
You need to know up until this day I still feel so, so hollow

It's okay, it's okay, feel my peace, I'm giving it to you, so don't worry
Because you need it more than I do, take it all, I don't need serenity

I'm crying these tears for you, because you couldn't, because you wouldn't
You didn't, even though you wanted to; you just said that you shouldn't

I have a lot of secrets to keep, some are others, but most are mine
My heart is a vault with a thousand locks, so please have no doubt in mind

Come here, I'm going to let you in
You'll be safe from now on, your calm will begin

I promise that I won't let you go, ever
Everything is going to be okay, because the pain is now over
I will keep every deep, dark secret
I will damage myself to hold onto a promise

Take my hope
And make it your own

Stay within my heavy heart
So you will always be safe where you are

This poem is written for my project which is titled-
"Broken Wings Unbound: I'm Falling Down, I'm Soaring Now"
In volume nine: Harsh hallucinations
Nightmare: The Secret Keeper -
Nightmare: The Compulsive Liar- Nightmare: The Compulsive Liar Nightmare: The Compulsive Liar

Step by step
You attempt to walk away from yourself
Breath after breath
You try your best to not call out for help

I am so far from you, I am are better off this way

One tear after another
You were never good at hiding your feelings
All of those cuts seem to go deeper and deeper
You were always the one who took in all of our suffering

I don't know you anymore, I no longer recognize that face

Day by day
You endure this storm of scars
Night after night
You silently cry alone in the dark

I don't know what you're talking about, I'm fine, I'm okay

One dream after another
You see all of the things you

Thank you. I also did it in a silver version, but found it kind of dull. I like silver though :P
