Dying

Walking around, head held high
Tears stream inside
Outside I fake a smile
How are you? Oh I’m fine
I’m not, I’m dying inside

The lies I say to keep people happy
Breaks my heart and tears my skin
The world is black and white, I see no colour
Everyone tells me the world is beautiful
Is it really? Or is it their perfect lives?

It’s summer now but it doesn't show
I wear pants and jumpers every day
Despite the long scorching days
To hide the scars my body has accumulated
To hide the pain I have caused

I’m broken and scarred
No one can help me now
I’m too far shattered.
The pieces everywhere
No one can find them
To glue them together
