Pretend

November 1, 2011
They act like they know me,
But they can't see within.
My heart full of pain,
Their minds full of sin.

People laughing,
People staring,
People trying to see,
What it is I'm not sharing.

I act like it doesn't hurt,
But I'm dying inside.
Terrified that someone will see,
What I'm trying so hard to hide.

The secret pain,
The tears I cry.
All the time,
Just wondering why.

Why they treat my like this,
Why it hurts so bad.
Why I don't have the life,
That I could have had.

Just take me away,
Make me disappear.
Please, just take me,
Far away from here.

This year was supposed to be different,
But, alas, it begins again.
Why do they have to do this?
Please...just make it end.

I hope and pray that someday soon,
It will be over, it will end.
Until that day, I guess,
I'll continue to pretend.
