    It's Because I Hide It

    No one really knows how much I hurt.. I alway hide it with humor or even silence. No one really knows the truth..

    How...

    How will you know I am Hurting, if you cannot see my Pain? To wear it on my body, tells what words Cannot Explain.... You don't see the scars....you don't see the tears....because you choose to see nothing that isn't perfect.....

    Because I Don't Let You See It...

    I know you can't see the pain that hurts me down to the core, because I refuse to share it, I refuse to let you see that pain. I don't want you to see it, I don't want you to be exposed to that kind of pain and know just how bad I hurt. I refuse to let you see the pain I carry...

    Nice

    You never see. No matter how clear it is, in the way I talk and the words I say. At least I listen, and I give advice. But all you can say are things that don't mean anything. I keep telling myself that I am just over looking into things, but why does this keep happening then...

    Something To Laugh About

    You can't see it because I'm embarrassed to admit it,so I cover it with jokes,and trying to be funny. Sometimes it catches up with me,and I'll cry for a few minutes,but most of the time I ignore the pain,or try to keep busy,or find something funny to laugh about.

    Partly....

    Because I don't show you my pain. I don't share it with you, or for anyone for that matter. I keep all my pain inside me, or in my stories, so unless you read this, you will never know the pain that I am in, or the pain that I am feeling.

    I Know That Most Haven't Felt It Either.

    I cry myself to sleep because I am terrified to close my eyes. Not many people have felt this pain I have. Yet I hide my pain because I don't want to be hurt again. No one can see my pain.
