Surrender to the truth I wanted to ignore

I saw it as growth

I was proud if my progress

...to be able to speak of my struggle

...to be able to be openabout something I always kept inside

Always the one to suffer in silence

Always telling people I was "fine" when I was falling apart

I was proud

But it would seem I was wrong

No one wants to hear it

No one wants to see it

No one wants to know it

So be quiet...

Put back your mask...

Keep wearing that smile that doesn't match the eyes on the verge of tears

No one actually cares

No one actually wants to be there

They have their own lives

They do not have the time or desire to pay you any mind

Do they truly care if your heart beats while the soul dies?

I thought they did.

But I was wrong again...

So I shall once again sufer in silence until the dead heart in my chest finally gives up

I see your pain coming out on my screen. It takes a lot of courage to do this.

So true of many of us - don't want to know, don't want to talk about it, don't bother us. Go away. Makes me angry.
