Pretending Nothing's Wrong - Poem by Kellie Younger

I love how people can keep going,
Like nothing's wrong.
Nobody sees the pain in my eyes.
The sparkle is gone,
The fire put out,
By all of my tears I cry each night.
Everyone thinks I'm okay,
That everything is perfect.
I guess that's the image I give off.
But underneath the sugar coat, I've died.
My soul is gone, my heart in pieces
But no one knows.
Nothing's keeping me here anymore.
I have no reason to like,
But I have every reason to die.
My life has fallen apart,
Unraveled by a single thread.
But no one sees the pain in my eyes
I don’t want help,
I just want my life back.
Don't try to understand,
Because I know you can't.
Just give me my life back,
Make me 'normal'.
All I ask is for one more chance,
But I don't know if that will happen.
My death sentence has been given.
No one can change it...
