I feel like screaming it out
I feel like shaking someone until they understand
I feel like I’m going crazy
But it can’t show
Never show how bad it really is
Just smile
I feel like telling everyone
I feel like just lashing out
I feel like I need (shudder) help
But it can’t show
Never show how bad it really is
Just smile
I feel like I’m drowning in it all
studies… homework… friends… secrets… pressure… parents… fighting… pain… self-hatred…
I feel like screaming
I feel like every one of my issues
Is a person
Screaming at me
To look at them
To figure them out
To acknowledge them
Their all screaming at me
In a tiny room
In my head
and there I am
In the middle of this crowd
Fighting for a breath
and here I am
silent
I feel like sewing my lips shut
So I can never share my pain
I feel like tying my arms together
So I can never hurt anyone
I feel like I am going crazy
But it can’t show
Never show how bad it really is
Just smile

My pen is the barrel of a gun. Remind me which side you should be on.

You have no idea how it feels to read this. I feel like I have written this myself a hundred times, you got the feeling so spot on. I love this, I love how your words fit and describe exactly how I have felt. This is wonderfully written, great job and thank you for sharing it.
