"Are you okay?" No. I'm dying. I have to push myself to wake up in the morning, and when I finally do, I want to go back to sleep. Even my best dreams are becoming nightmares. I can't taste food, I can't stand the things I used to love. I'm breaking. I'm fading. I'm dying. "I'm fine."
I have seen the beauty of a dove beneath the skies I have told the harshest truths, and I have told some lies I have seen a child cry into its mother's arms I have been that weeping girl who held onto self-harm
I have heard the laughter of a man about to die I have seen the anger resting deep within their eyes I have been the victim of my own disgusting thoughts I have seen the best of people slowly start to rot
I have felt the heartache; I have seen a love go blue… So much time is left to spare, but so much less to do…
"Are you okay?" That's all they say. And I leave behind These words in my mind. I'm broken, I'm dying. Inside, I'm crying. There are wounds beneath my skin. There are trials I face within. There are things I just can't say. There are people I must betray. Beneath a smile, I feel pain. Behind the sun, there's always a little rain. And beneath these words I hold in my head... There's always the thing I say instead. I leave the truth behind.. So when they say, "are you okay?" I always say, "I'm fine."
Meet a girl named No One, with a heart of shattered stone Staring at the other girl, the one that's not alone Girl with skin that glistens, with the eyes of crystal seas Grin of shining diamonds and a laugh like a disease Flashes just a glance and soon, she's every trouble's cure She has everything… and No One's off to be like her.
Eating turns into a crime, she'd rather be away Thrusting fingers down her throat to make herself okay Watching as her very bones are seen behind her flesh There she drowns in tears, for she has not yet seen success.
Minutes turn to hours, and these hours turn to days Every moment slipping, slowly fading into grey Rapidly, her body turns to nothing but her bones As she fights for beauty, as she battles for the throne.
Broken hearts must learn to beat, and this she came to know Learning it the hard way when her heartbeat grew too slow Yet, she somehow managed still to shine from what's within Lying in her casket with her hidden, unseen sin.
Final thoughts inside her head scream through the broken skies She had never reached her goal, the one that took her cries. They never acknowledged how the torture was so rough She was never beautiful… not beautiful enough…
