The Girl That Nobody Knows

©

Published: March 2013

There is a girl that everyone knows
Beautiful grin, no worries or woes
Laugh is one you'll never forget
She's living in her past debt
She hates her body, says she is fat
She shouldn't hate herself, but doesn't know that
She's the girl with the biggest smile
Nobody knows she forces up bile
Feels worthless, ugly, abandoned, wasted
No one knows the tears she has tasted
Cries herself to sleep at night
But smiles again once it is bright
She pulls the blade across her skin
Takes comfort in the pain she's in
She loves the sight of her own blood
She wants to see the beautiful flood
She once said she wished she was dead
She meant it, wasn't just in her head
This is the girl that nobody knows
Inside her walls she's forever enclosed

I'm known as the silent but deadly one in my family. I keep all my feelings on the inside, hidden from everyone else behind a smile or a glare and no one knows the real pain I go through each day. They really say it's just a phase and that I just need to get over it but how can I when I hate myself on the inside? When I can't control the emotions I am hiding?

This story fits me well I always hide behind a fake smile always try and hide my pain from people. Cry myself to sleep at night and just let everyone think I'm okay when I'm really not.

I know how you feel I wanted to die so many times just because my voice wasn't being heard from anyone.

This explains me so much. This is my life I hide behind a big fake smile but cry myself to sleep at night. This was so touching to me.

You do not cry alone. We both look to the same star.
