Pain demands to be felt

It does

Being so frustrated, you could cry


The sadness overtakes your body

like a person diving in the ocean

slowly then all at once

covered in water

in tears

all because of frustration

It's hard to recognize

a real smile

a real laugh

because of all the pain

that has built up

throughout the years

All burrowed up in a corner

crying until your eyes bleed

crying to hopefully lift your sorrows

that are hidden deep inside

behind a fake smile

that comes out every morning

the pain in your head

demanding to be felt
