Crazy Girl

I hurt inside
turmoil within
but I will not give them the pride
to see me cry on the outside.
demons claw at my stomach
rip open my heart
and I bleed.
but only on the inside
not outside, you see.
I shiver and shake
from a cold deep down,
but outside it’s just nerves
for a race downtown.
they think they know me
but they don’t
they think they see me
but I'm cloaked.
invisible girl, deep down its absurd.
never seen never heard
hiding what’s inside,
because I will not give me the pride
to see me cry on the outside.
