Hiding behind fake facades of forced smiles and laughter. Lying through gritted teeth that I have not lay harm to myself once more, whilst the sting from my skin is only just bearable.
Being alone is the scariest time as I feel like there is no where to go but down a swirling rabbit hole of never being enough. I try and catch myself before its too late but I have yet taken to hurting myself once more.
Shaking uncontrollably, trying not to crack and cry the tears that threaten to spill. If only the words for help would fall so easily, maybe I would no longer suffer in desolate silence.
