The Veiled Demons

Let the rain hide the tears
Like the veil over your eyes
The world just doesn’t see
All the demons that hide inside

Like the foundation of your home
She holds you up through the ground
You may not see the strain
Even though she’s falling apart

The insecurities chew through like termites
Your demands rain down through the gutters
She’ll look shiny and new on the outside
While the walls are crumbling one by one.

So let her walk it out and for once
Don’t demand her to be that grown
The child inside is in need of love
If you can’t give it, then let her walk.

Let the rain hide the tears
Like the veil over your eyes
The world just doesn’t see
All the demons that hide inside
