Screams For Help

Can't anyone see me?

See this fake smile on my face?

See these tears that I hold back?

Can't you see the pain that I'm in?

You all see this wall of protection that I have put up, 

But can nobody see who I really am, behind this wall?

Nobody can tell that my laughter is just a loud scream for help.

Nobody can tell that I'm dying inside.

Nobody can tell that this smile is elastic.

I just want it all to end.

I want everyone to notice.

I want to be seen.

I want someone to save me from myself...
