I smile and laugh wildly having fun with my friends. 

They don't know what huge lie 

I have to pretend to my friends. 

To my friends I'm the funny girl who is always full of life 

They don't know how many times I've held a bloody knife. 

To them I'm the girl who loves to strut down the street they don't know that I feel incomplete. 

To my friend's my laughter can spread. 

They don't know what's inside 

My happiness has died.

To my friends my smile can brighten up their day.

They don't know I've shut my feelings away.

Locked in a prison I can't escape a place my soul is repeatedly raped. There's no love, there's no spark I'm alone, tired, desperate and left in the dark waiting for the demon's to come.

What do you call it when all you feel is pain ?

When your loved ones look at you with shame. 

When you're tired of playing their game.

When the hurt is in your soul..

Smiles and laughs are just for show.

When really I've hit an all time low where nothing makes me happy and the darkness around me grows.

    i absolutely love your work and you really have to remember that your life is yours these thoughts... these demons... this pain... it wont matter in the end the lord is our savior and forever will protect us the thoughts we think always can be overshadowed by the lord... sometimes you need someone there for you ill be here if you ever need anything...
