"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

You think I can't tell

But I can

I felt that vibe change

I saw your eyes start to tear up

And your first clench

Noticed the way you went rigid

And ducked your head

At the mention of PTSD

From a professor that had never seen the likes of war

Of course neither had I

So how could I possible help you

I settle for passing you a note

"Are you okay?"

And your deceitful reply

but i could see straight thru him

he pushed me away

i still wonder how he really is

and it's been over year
