    I'M Tired...

    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...

    See Me If You Can

    This came to me and I didn't know where to post this. This seemed a good place.   I am who you see not. No dream nor fantasy, no spoken thought is invoked that can find me.  Seek me if you wish, I will only hide.  Fear of the pain inside falling out upon the...

    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...

    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...

    Handle With Care

    I am fragile like pieces of broken glass but I always try to hide it. People think I am all tough and strong. I am shocked! Because I am the mst sensitive person I have ever known, not that I am proud of it. People think I am hard-core and I don't cry. While in fact, I am a total...

    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...

    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...
