The Truth - Poem by Shannon Nicole

Living a life of lies
Floating through the world
Not knowing what is right
What the hell do I do now?
I've forgotten how to love...
How to care for those that need to be
Lying awake in a wonderful dream
Knowing that nothing could ever hurt me
Only myself
So I take that blade
I thrust it into my chest
Hoping no one would notice my disappearance
That is exactly what happened
No one noticed
So I smiled in my blood
I smiled at the floor
My first real smile was shown...
