Which Of Me?

What could you possibly see when you sit there and stare back at me?
The porcelain mask that's painted perfectly,
or what's truly underneath?
Do you see the costume of my sweet serenity,
or the torn roots around my feet?
Is it my pretty little smile,
or the frozen screams behind my teeth? 
Perhaps it's the strength that I portray,
or the weakness that I hide?
Do you believe what I have told them,
or do you know that I have lied?
do you take in my composed innocence,
or the demons of my restless mind?
Do you think that I'm really living,
or do you know that I've already died?

I'm all alone in a room that's dark,
fighting the urge to add another mark,
My tears are flowing my thoughts collide, and the end result I'll have to hide.

I'm battered and bruised and all alone,
unable to fight this on my own.
friends used to help me through the day,
but they saw my pain and ran away.

I'm growing weaker as the days pass,
afraid today might be my last.
I know the next move is up to me,
asking for HELP is my only key...
