she cried

crying
as she stood beneath the hot, steamy stream
her heart let out a silent scream
and her tears began to graze her cheek
where the water had already been
she told herself she’d be stronger today
she’d hold her head high and give nothing away
because she deserved better and would have it
though all that she really wanted was him

Run

i don’t know who i am today
or where the road i’m on is gonna lead
i’m a stranger here
in the midst of crowds that know me
and i need to feel
the pavement moving down beneath my feet

i want to feel the burn
in my swelling lungs
to find a dream
or something to become
i need a place to be
that isn’t where i’m from
i need to run
