Lamentation by Quintessence


Good at hiding the sadness

Great at hiding the pain

knowing when to stay silent

knowing how to dance in the rain.


Making the best of the bad times

cry silently through all of the sad times

giving every ounce of her brightness

Breaking down alone in the darkness

crying tears leaving tracks on her cheeks.


Pain inside is all-consuming

unaware are all who thought the knew her

Ask not for help to get through it

far to gloomy 

for some to consume it.

Death at her door seems inviting

why even try to keep fighting

to silence the screams would be better

give it all up altogether

the rest of the world would forget her

The pain is not going to get any better.


 A light breaks through stormy weather

A hand on her shoulder to guide her

know someone wants her to really get better

they’ll be standing alongside her.

to stand up and take in the fresh air

fill her lungs and shew away the despair.


 To help dry up all of her tears

chasing away all of her fears

Death is warned off once again

keep on living with all that she can.
