    Smartazz

    I'll mouth off and make smart remarks to anyone.  Some of that is just me seeing the world from a weird angle...but a lot stems from a need to appear a lot stronger than I am.  The wrong word at the wrong moment could shatter me.  So I put on a loud, mouthy persona...just to...

    The Things You Do To Me You'Ll Never Know

    Every thought I waste on you feels like another bullet to my chest. Every dream you intrude feels like I'm slowly bleeding to death. But you don't know and you'll never know the things you do to me. The way you make me feel. I can't stand to think about you, it's tearing me apart...

    Excuses, Excuses.

    I am so sad, but I hide it well. I always have an excuse for everything. Now some people are starting to see through those excuses and there is no way out. When someone comments on my wrist, I say it was the cat. When someone says I was in the bathroom for a while, I say I...

    The Strong One

    I am fragile, but hide it well... but at what cost? I am only human too. I have my limits too. People often forget that. They forget that I can break too. I was six years old when I first assumed the role of the strong one. I might have been forced into the role, but I accepted...

    Broken Wings

    I am like a bird with broken wings. So easy to break again, my hollow bones echo the sounds of my pain. Within my armor, I am easily hurt. I won't show it, but I will be devastated. I will make a witty comeback, a sarcastic remark, or a hurtful comment of my own. I will go home...

    I'm tired of screaming. I'm tired of not being heard. I'm tired of faking smiles and forcing laughs. I'm tired of being here. I'm tired of hoping. I'm tired of dreaming and wishing. I'm tired of waiting for something that's never going to come. I'm tired of breathing. I'm tired...

    I Hide It From My Family Very Well....

    I hide how fragile I am from my family. I hide how bad I am hurting. I hide it from them, because I know they will give me a hard time, and tell me to get over myself. I am very fragile. I often, hate myself more than I let on. I hate myself for being alive, and all that crap...
