Poem: they dont knowBy Katie
Fake little smiles that fool everyone, even yourself.
Feelings unknown to anyone but you, hidden in the highest locked shelf
Sparkling eyes that people confuse with happiness but it’s the unshed tears
No one knows what’s happened to you or about all of your pretty little fears
Twinkling voice laced with pain that people believe is joy
And the heavy way you carry yourself could just be problems with a boy.
And suddenly living your life became a chore
To not let anyone close enough to see that you aren’t really there anymore.
Wearing a mask as your disguise
And you keep trying to hide
Everything that is breaking inside
It feels like a tornado
And every feeling is like a volcano
And you’re about to erupt
And you know ur going to hurt everyone you love
You feel like you can’t take it anymore
But everyone that you adore
Is keeping you tied here
And all you want to do is leave cause everything is unclear
Everyone around you wants you gone
Because people keep saying rumors about how you’re wrong
Or how you looking at you reminds them of a nasty song
