Hurting yet Smiling

Poetry By: DarkTenshi
True confessions



It's okay, I'm just dying on the inside...

Sitting by you

In the class room

You look concerned

And ask me

If I'm okay

But what I want to answer

Is not okay

So I say

I'm okay

You don't have to worry

I say that while smiling

But I'm slowly dying

It's so hard to keep this mask in place

When you just want to scream

Inside I'm lying in a poodle of my own blood

Reaching weakly for the light

Reaching for a hand somewhere

Can't see the end of this road

It seems endless from where I'm standing

Clenching my eyes shut

Pretending

This is just a nightmare...
