Screaming at a Whisper

Poetry By: jhj1302
Young adult

When you want people to hear what you're screaming on the inside, but out comes a whisper of fake emotions.

For the world I put on a smile,

But inside I die a little at a time.

For the world I whisper the words they want to hear,

But inside I scream every word that has cut me deep.

For the world I appear strong,

But inside I'm weak willed and hurting.

It's easy to put on a mask for the world,

But hard to fool myself.

For the world I say I don't need you,

But inside my heart yearns for one more kiss.

For the world I stand tall with my chin up,

But inside I cry and fall down.

All that the world can hear,

Is me screaming at a whisper.
