Just See Me

Can't you see I'm dying inside?

Can't you see the tears gathering in my eyes?

Can't you see the cracks in my mask? Why don't you see me for who I am?






Why can't you see past my perfect facade

my perfect grades

my perfect smile

my perfect responses

my perfectly crafted walls


Why can't you see the girl inside?

The girl begging for help,

But who doesn't know how to ask


Why can't you reach out?

Offer me a hand out of this dark & lonely place?


Why can't you see me?

Why don't you help me?
