You'Re Killing Me - Poem by Crystal Johnson

You act like I'm invisible
When you see me in the hall
I know that you're ignoring me
'Cause I'm different from you all

I hear your nasty rumors
And I feel your hateful glares
But deep inside it's killing me
Though I act like I don't care

Hurting me might pleasure you
You want to see me cry
But you'll never see a single tear
'Cause I save them for that night

Your life must be so perfect
The way you treat me like you do
I only have one question
What did i ever do to you?

I used to always smile
I thought of myself with pride
but he day that I first met you
You looked and rolled your eyes

I'm tired of trying to hide it
I just want you to see
That sometimes looks can really kill
And you happened to look at me
