"there's a darkness upon me that's flooded in light, and i'm frightened by those that don't see it" ~the avett brothers, head full of doubt

She smiled
As her mother came in
To tell her goodnight
Hugged her
And continued to pretend
As she shut the door the mask slipped away
She stopped forcing herself to seem happy
And sighed
Her eyelashes were still wet
From crying
