A Letter I Can't Send

I can write you a letter

I'll make it so you can see

I'll write it so things look better

And hope that you never read

I don't want to show you

I'm not sure I can go there

I don't think I can take it

The pitying stare

I've written these letters

They never go out

They hold all the secrets

And fill me with doubt

How will you see me

When you really can see

What will you think then

What will it mean?

When you see what I'm made of

When you know what I am

The dark steals the light

And it's all that I am

When the curtain is lifted

And I step on the stage

You'll know what was missing

You'll know my real name
