All that's inside

by Mahalia Butler   Nov 2, 2017

All I feel is hurt, anger, and pain
And the unending tears
that forever fall like rain.
When I say I'm fine,
Believe me, I'm anything but.
The anger burning inside me
I can no longer keep shut.
This smile on my face
Hides whats within
The fears in my head
I couldn't even begin.
Please you must keep out,
Can't you see I've built up a wall?
My unstable world will crumble
If it should ever fall.
My fears own me
They steal my precious years
Until my life is nothing
Lost to my unending fears.
Can I please have someone
to see my aching pain?
To reach down inside me
And make my heart beat again ?

    A terribly sad write. However, the charade of happiness that so many of us hide behind will be entirely relatable to too many people on this site, I fear.

    Well written and very well expressed.
