A/N: It sort of contains SPOILERS. I've been snowed in my house for quite a while now. I've been bored now for a while too so I thought I would write something about Akito, so here you go.

Silent Suffering

I am all alone here,

In the dark forever lost.

They think I'm harsh and cruel,

But the truth is that I am afraid of rejection.

I am afraid that they will love,

And push me away.

So I hold closer than I should,

And that makes them hate me instead.

All I want is for them to like me,

But I can't show that.

I am forever suffering,

Here in the silence of the night.

The darkness is so comforting,

And it matches my pain.

I let the tears fall down,

Only when no one is watching.

I want to show them kindness,

But the fear of losing them is far too great.

When they came to me only wanting my permission to love,

I end up hurting them and telling them no.

I believed that you can only love one person,

And that person must be me.

I am forever suffering,

Here in the silence of the night.

I locked the cat away,

For he was my first friend and I am afraid he will leave.

I hurt the Honda girl,

I thought she was trying to take them away from me.

I often wondered how they could love her,

Yet they couldn't seem to be able to love me.

It was far too late,

When I finally saw the truth.

I didn't pull them closer,

I only ended up pushing them further away.

Now I am here crying all alone,

I guess my mom won the bet after all.

I am forever suffering,

Here in the silence of the night.
