Relative Despair

The footsteps down the street

My pain
Words trapped in my head

Years of the same

My last refrain

Alone amongst friends
The strangers are empty
Watching my joy dance away
Everything and nothing to say

I become the entertainer
My happy face mirrors theirs
Our laughter hides reality
We're all unaware

I feel the worst
But not as bad as him
And she hurts much more
But none of us can see

That I'm all alone
And he's lost inside
She needs so much
Let the feelings un-hide

Relative Despair
You can never compare
The world is unfair
We all have our share
