Behind the Smile Lies the Scars

Short story By: Darklily

Don't know what to say about this one, but you could interpret it as either an abused child or spouse, this is about a character who was abused by her father as a child. I wrote this awhile back when I wrote Facades and Never Awake, there's one more of these, it's just needs a tittle.

What is wrong with me? Inside I know it's him,

not me, but I can't help but want to make him

happy. All I desire is his love, his approval,

instead I get his cruelty. These scars are

reminders of what I've done wrong.

Everything I do isn't good enough for him.

I want to tell someone the truth, but I can't,

he will only be angry with me. I hide all my

pain with a simple smile, to let everyone

know I'm okay, even though I'm not.
