A Taste of Teenage AngstPull on the mask that I’ll wear todayA Taste of Teenage Angst by ChelseaHantken
For what’s underneath fades away.
My anger and sadness stain the light.
The pain I feel destroys my life.
But no one will know
When I wear this mask
…Will they even notice?
I’m too scared to ask.
I build the anger up inside me
Go to sleep to avoid crying
I find myself maskless on the floor
Please … don’t hurt me anymore.
Broken tears dissolve the lands
Cover my sins with bleeding hands
I hope to wake up dead one day
And smell the comfort of my own decay
I dream to end this eternal nightmare
Go on, kill me – I won’t care.
The leaves fall from the winter tree
Your lips are as dry as they could be
A tear rolls down your frozen cheeks
No one is there, alone you breathe
A butterfly collapses by your hair
Her beautiful wings denied all care
Your body erodes with the aging air
I’m sorry that I wasn’t there.
Your garden is so innocent that you’d never know
