I know exactly how you feel, i never let family/friends read my poetry... i feel self-conscious about my feelings and afraid they will make fun of them or put me into therapy, when really writing is my therapy. good poem 5/5
What can I say about this piece. So heartbreaking and OH MY!!! I can so relate to the words.
The idea that your family won't see this poem, it reminds me of all of my poems and how much I don't want them to see it. I don't know what it is but I think for me it's the shame of what I'm feeling and going through and embarrassment. I think if they knew what we were feeling, they would not look at us the same way.
The ending was unbelievable. The idea that people who get you see the hurt, the pain and those who don't see this fake smile that you put on. To them your smile is real.
An awesome write hun LOVED IT COMPLETELY!!!
