A simple story can tell an entire story!~~ ME
Pictures tell a 1000 words~IDK :P

Everyone says I have a beautiful smile,
But what they don't know, is it hides my lies.
I always say "yeah I'm fine"
But inside I yell, I scream, I shout,
The true me wants out!

So much of my hurt builds up inside.
When they realize the truth it will be too late.
They will say it was suicide,
But not with a deep razor slice,
Bottle of pills or a rope across my neck.

It was my inner beast.
My pain got the best of me.
All my hidden sadness, anger, and pain,
Ate away at me until I was dead.
My soul is empty cold, dark, and black.

I died years ago inside.
No one knew what I was going through.
I'm already dead.
Empty and forgotten.
Lost, sad, and alone.

The author's comments:
I just came across this poem, it was in one of my old poetry books. I wrote this when I was experiencing a dark time. I was going through a lot of stuff and really hated life. I never tried suicide, but did thought of it. Then one day I woke up and realized just how selfish I was being! How could I put all my family and friends through something like that? I was put here for a reason I just needed to figure that out! :)
