Shulinn's Song, by Vivian Hadding

You play at affection
Yet, you don't say it
You make me wonder if I'm not going insane

You want to know how I feel
Well, I'll tell you
I want to scream
I want to run without stopping
Till, I can't feel my heart
I want to believe, but I'm uncertain

You throw out bits of hope
Like rain drops in the desert
I try to quench my thirst with imaginary water

You want to know how I feel
Well, I'll tell you
I want to tattoo
Every inch of my body
Till, the pain of the needle
Numbs the fear in my head

You say I should trust
Yet, I don't really know you
Why is it you're at ease with everyone except me

You want to know how I feel
Well, I'll tell you
I feel like a child
Small and helpless
Alone and confused in a world full of strangers

You, green river Dragon
Hold my heart unknowing
I feel lost, without you I stumble in the dark

You want to know how I feel
Well, I'll tell you
Every night when you turn
To your underwater cavern
I wonder what it is you truly think of me

You toss my love
Back and forth
Like a string tied to the end of your finger

You want to know how I feel
Well, I'll tell you
I feel broken and empty
Of both hope and promise
And I can't help wondering
How many are laughing, while my soul is crumbling
