Broken - Poem by Mel Maguire

On the outside I’m smiling
On the inside I’m crying
There’s no point of living as I’m slowly dying
Take me as I am
Or not at all
I don’t care not no more
As I go to bed at night I wish people knew what I am like
But that doesn’t worry me in the slightest way
As I mourn in sorrow all the time of day
Why is this happening?
Why am I depressed?
I just want to stick a knife through my chest
But I know I would be hurting the people around me
That’s just it
That’s the key
How would I even no if it would bother thee?
It’s funny how you think about it
Or when you write it down
People just think that you’re trying to be a clown
It hurts deep inside that they don’t have a clue
When actually it’s very true
You know when people say scars run deep but tears fade away
My tears don’t fade as they will always stay
When you take the time to see
You will realize that that’s just me
