Pain - Poem by jahmelia jasmine

On the outside...am ok
but your x-ray vision reveals alot more
I see the concern in your face
I tear up on the inside
my heart bursts, my lungs deflate
my brain shuts down, my internal organs
have all been damaged
from the constant stabbing
I try to function in the public eye
but it becomes over bearing
i slip up....the tears flow
my cover has been blown...i let out a scream
my heart is in my hand..i wheez
i cant breathe...
i begin to shut down
i begin to feel.......numb..
emptiness takes over.....the pain has..
devastated my little body...
my immune system can't fight back
Now i'm a zombie.....living on nothing but emptiness
hoping.....that the pain......
will return..but...
this tormenting emptiness
reeks havoc on whats left of my being.
