he tries...

He draws with silver

And it comes out red


Clean lines

Cover most of his body

He tries to go deeper

Fear of failure

Stops him

He smiles through the pain

No one knows

What he hides

They cant see his heart

Dont know how broken it is

Taped together halfhazardly

He doesnt want it anymore

Its been smashed

Too many times

But with a smile

And a happy voice

No one knows

Hes dying inside

They are think hes fine

He has to be fine

She doesnt like it when hes not
