Suffering Through the Pain

“They lied to me!”

She screams to herself.


They promised!

That they would be there for her.


How could she not see through such an obvious lie?

She’s so stupid!

Her silence is her most powerful scream.

No matter how many people she tries to surround herself with, fooling them with her smile and bubbly attitude, at the end of the day she’s still alone.

Do they have any idea how worthless they made her feel?

She smiles, but she wants to cry.

She talks, but she wants to be quiet.

She pretends that she’s happy, but she’s not.

She’s used to being left behind.

She’s used to being the second choice.

She’s used to it.

And she’s sick of it.

They have no idea how worthless they made her feel.
