    Fake Smile

    I put up a fake smile so people will think I'm fine. The only problem is, the more I smile and the more they think I'm okay, the more they think I can handle. I just want someone to realize I'm not okay, and I can't handle it all. Or even for them to notice that I don't want to...

    I've been trying to be happy,

    especially now that I'm pregnant but i cant. I hide it from everyone, only this baby knows how I feel. Sometimes I feel like not moving on, but it's not fair to this baby. I know it's wrong but I sometimes want to die and take this baby with me so he or she doesn't have to deal...

    It's A Skill

    And it takes a long time to master. I've practiced my entire life. I used to watch my face in the mirror, see how I react to certain things to know what I would look like when Dad came home, or when I got yelled at. I don't practice anymore, but my emotionless thing still...
