I've Changed My Mind

I woke up this morning
Dressed before the mirror
I see what you do not
A smile to hide sorrow
Some pink to colour pale
Walls built to keep you out
Tears spent to release you
Mere mortal without hope
I hear the bleating sounds
Of the clock counting down
Chiming tick tock tick tock
White noise to help me drown
I mimic the living
Every breath that I take
A plastic reminder
Of anguish and heartache
Through the curtains, the Sun
Brazenly rushes in
Shouting out to the world
A new day has begun
With a strength, I’ve not known
I will once again try
Forgive your callous heart
Let my love for you die
