I just cant do it

She sits in her room, just an empty shell.
She walks through the school, with such a fake smile.
Everyone believes, no one sees
Going through the motions, day by day
If you’re real quiet, you might just hear it.
The voices screaming, inside her head
Driving her insane, she can’t stand the pain
She sees your face, and dies a little more inside
She sees her in your arms, she wants to SCREAM!!
Standing in front of the mirror, wondering what’s wrong with her?
Banging her head against the wall, all night long
Trying to make sense, of how it all went wrong
What will it take, to make the memories fade?
Like a broken record, playing again and again
In the back of her head, over and over
MAKE IT STOP, MAKE IT STOP
She’s had all she can take, its killing her
Her arms are free of cuts, but her heart isn’t free of scars
She’s been used, to many times
And right now all she’s trying to do, is just stay alive
