he touches me

tries to comfort me

but i flinch away 

from it

not wanting him to feel

the scars 

underneath my skin

from cuts ive made

over days

and weeks

and months

of hate

not of others 


he breaks away

from me

he asks if 



i say


fine .

it tears me apart

to lie

to him

but i can’t tell him

hurt him

burden him

with all the things

he’s yet to know

i can’t tell him

the things

i feel


he’d try

to help

but instead

he’d hide

the feelings


within me

waiting to squirm

pop out

surprise me

why would that 

make it harder?

i can’t die 

there are people 

that need me

my family




they’d forget

but i can’t risk

their tears


my consciousness

i’ll just go on

like this

be great

with this smile

on my face

that i hate

i’ll get over it

it’ll be fine

so i go on

my life

full of

im fines
