No Title

Behind my eyes, the tears hide the pain, behind my smile, my jaw clenches tight, fighting the need to scream and tell everyone "no I am not alright, I am not okay", because I know what they will say "you are just having a bad day" but then again how could I expect them to understand anyway, I've been fooling them like I have been fooling myself, prentending to be me when really I am someone else, lost in a black hole inside myself screaming for help, in silence, masked by someone I want to be, the someone they see, someone who appears to be happy, but me I am sad and alone.

Thank you again for your comment, its nice to know when someone is touched by my writing or can relate and this helps knowing I am never alone.

Thanks, I am on it!......just had one of those nights.....its weird.... I wake up and I read this and I wonder who is this person who wrote this, I want to help her and at the same time it is me, it is me I need to help.

So, hope you have had on my behalf as well.
