You don't understand, you never do no matter how many times I try to explain it to you.

I tell you the truth that I feel so depressed but you say "I'm okay".

I thought you would know best.

But I'm not okay and people know that too but you can't see what's right in front of you.

I know you've been though this...

That you ached so much more...

But I can't help but wonder if you know me at all?.

I thought you would get it why I'm acting this way but you don't listen to what I have to say.

You just ignore me, pretend I'm alright I want this to end I think that I might...

Not one person understands I wish you could, it isn't fair but u feel you don't care.

Trying to make it threw even though if feels my life is falling to bits while I'm in the room.

I know so many people but do they know me?

They recognise the face but that's all they ever see.

They see a shell they believe is me but why don't they see the real me.
