Every day I am in your classroom
You call my name and occasionally speak to me out side of class
But what you don't know and can not see
The cuts that run deep
The knife in my side
I cover them all from your sight
The words that cut me
you hear but take as a joke
Stupid, worthless, broken, and fat
Ugly, unwanted, and a big piece of shit
The world would be better off with out me
They laugh and make fun but each word
Each word is a new bullet in my heart
Each word is a new cold, steel blade that slides through my skin
Each word creates a new river of blood.
Blood that you cant see
I want to tell you
I want you to know
But I must remain mute
They have sewn my lips shut using my own hand
Can't you see when you look me in the eye?
Can't you see when you see me in the hall?
No, of course you can't
You can't see through the mask I wear
Every day I'm in your classroom
You call me by name and occasionally speak to me outside of class
How I want to speak
How I want to scream
But how can I if my words fall upon dead ears?
Please hear me out
Please listen to me
