Alive but not living, yet.

A lifeless body of someone I loved laid down to rest.
They said to move on,
at least try your best.

But they forgot to mention,
they had rules for letting go.

If youíre sad,
donít let it show.

If youíre mad,
just let it go.

Simple enough, isnít that right?

But it doesnít help me sleep at night.

If Iím hurting I shouldnít have to fight it.

Denying it,
isnít a solution.

Itís like filling my body with pollution.

And I was drowning,
right in front of their eyes.

But they refused to compromise.

They stuck to what they know.

If they saw I was sad,
they didnít let it show.

If I make them mad,
they let me know.

Since I screwed up their rules,
they let me go.
