Why Can't You See Me

People stare at me when I’m out
Drawn to the bruises and cuts on my face and neck
Like I’m some kind of freak…

They look straight into my glossy eyes
But I’m certain they don’t care
They get nervous
Then quickly look away

I walk with the man who has done this
Everybody can see it
But a forced smile on my face
And everyone forgets

They know its fake

Eyes don’t lie
But they convince themselves
I’ll be ok

People stare at me
Like I’m some kind of freak
My hairs a mess,
My make ups caked on to hide the proof

I’m just the girl that doesn’t take care of herself

but when will people see me, for who I really am...
