into the darkness
you run away
from lifeless faces
painted gray
they can't see you
not today
you look through a two-way wall

you stop in your tracks
when they see your tears
another life lost
from hidden fears
no second chances
too many years
nobody knows who you are

dying to love
living to please
surrounded by flame
you can't help but freeze
you look for a smile
but no one agrees
you live in the shadows now

painted faces
fall apart
one short moment
of open hearts
when you turn around
it's not so dark
maybe the gray will fade

This describes a time in my life I would not want to relive....I'm still a bit gray around the edges sometimes. Excellent poem! Are you related to 5?

nope, never heard of 5. but perhaps we are long-lost relatives. our names are so similar after all.
