i don't think i realize how damaged i am
how truly broken and hurt my body feels

i just cover it up
patch it over
smile and pretend
that nothing
absolutely nothing
is wrong

and i think that i've started to believe
i really am okay
that i'm happy
and safe

but this fragile sense of security
is so easily shattered with a single word, action
and it all comes crashing back to me
i lose control of myself
and drown in words of self-hatred

all of this, however
has just caused me to learn
how to build my walls back up
quicker and faster
before anyone notices
so even i don't notice
