    I Don't Think Anyone In Real Life Can...

    I am sure everyone would describe me as a happy, go lucky type person who is always smiling. It is a mask, one I wear to get me through everyday. Nobody knows the pain I go through and feel on a daily basis. It makes me feel bitter as I am so caring towards others but then it's...

    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.

    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.

    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.
