You can find me waltzing at an ungodly hour under a blood red sky
with tears upon my pain stricken face and terror in my eyes.
You can tell me to stop, tell me how I’m hurting myself,
and still I will pick at the same seams until I find comfort in pain
You can hear me singing “So don’t let me cave in” in a basement at a party,
and know that if I do, it’s not your fault.
You can talk to me and I will listen.
And here. In this moment. In this interaction, I will smile. I will lie.
I will say that everything is fine.
But what makes you stand out is that you never believe me.
You have no idea how much I need that.
please don’t stop. when I say i’m fine i almost never am. keep asking. keep smiling . it keeps me safe.
