I’m Dying On The Inside

You see a smile on the outside
But that's all you can see
What if tears run down my face on the inside?
You hear a laugh on the outside
But that's all you can hear
What if I'm crying out for help on the inside?
You smell the scent I wear everyday on the outside
But that's all you can smell
What if it smells of death on the inside?
You feel soft, smooth skin on the outside
But that's all you feel
What if I'm being torn apart on the inside?
You taste sweet lips kissing you on the outside
But that's all you can taste
What if my lips taste of blood on the inside?
You can tell I'm happy on the outside
But what if you can't tell I'm dying on the inside?

omg this is my poem of the day becuase I feel the same way, like me and my boyfriend was going through drama and he thinks that it's ok for him not to say how I feel about it but it hurts me deep inside to think that he don't care, so I just leave it alone while I still have tears that I hide from him

It's how me and my boyfriend are. He gets mad because I don't show my emotions towards him he just doesn't know that if I did it would be pain and sadness. No one can see so, no one can help. My wrist are the only evidence of my secret depression. I want help...I need help. but I can't find it..

I swear this is me. I try to tell people I hurt but they don't see it. They just see what they want to see, a perfect girl with no problems but they could not be more wrong about me.
