"Rejection"

One more shrug, and, turning

Eternity to bide

Another sigh, another vague

Dull aching deep inside

And I find that it’s easiest to hide…

'Cause every time I am broken

Each scar I wear with pride

With every word unspoken

I tell myself I’m fine -

Even if I lie.

The no-hard-feelings handshake

(practiced, easy grace)

The sadly gentle smile

Living on my face

Yet here I am, once again…

'Cause every time I am broken

I’ll wear my scars with pride

With every word unspoken

I will tell myself I’m fine -

Even when I lie.

Back within the corners

Hopes and shadows fall

To rest in cradled greyness:

Empty filling all.

'Cause every time I am broken

Each scar I cannot hide

With every word unspoken

It’s harder to speak a lie

And tell you that I’m fine

Even if I lie

I’ll tell you that I’m fine

I will promise you I’m fine

I promise you

I’m fine
