You called me names, you called me filth-but i only smiled.

You stared at me with two emotionless eyes,
the cold eyes,
the ones that seem to plea "help me, im scared"
but i only laughed, laughed when you taunted,
laughed when you beated me with your pride.
you can't see, might never see what you have truly done.
beneath it all,
the smiles, the laughs,
is someone i dont even recognize.
blood covers his face, bruises paint his make-up,
and cuts run across his body.
the mask hides it with a smile and a laugh to all-
but the days seem longer, and the words seem stronger-yet i still stand.
but i thought they would heal,
go away, i thought the pain would just go away,
i want the pain to just go away.
more words, more stones to hit me.
more stares, more sticks to cut me.
alone i stand in my own world,
but my mask is finally breaking.
my knees give in-
everyone walks by as i cry silently beneath my mask.
tears sting my face, cracks begin to form,
but i sadly manage to smile,
but it gets harder everyday...
sticks and stones may break my bones, but words cut even deeper.
theres a darkness within my soul, one that never goes away. the person u see is the bitter me, the one i fear...
