Why don’t you visit often? Why do I never see your smile?
Do I make you sad? Do you not like me? Why do you glance at me For a second and turn away the next?
Always with a frown Sometimes you stand in front of me. I watch as you brush your hair and teeth. Putting on some mascara and lipgloss. Dear, you already have a beautiful face. I see you often change your outfit And you sigh, so frustrated - Yet I thought you looked great in all of them.
I watch you sitting on your bed Silent tears running down your face. I notice how the time flies as you stay there Eating one meal a day Waking up at 12.
I see you on your laptop all day - Doing homework or just Distracting yourself from all of the pain.
Writing in your journal No one else knows your mind - What’s in your heart - Your eyes - The weight on your shoulders - And all of the sadness that consumes you.
When you finally take your mask off And step off the stage of life at night - Only I can see the real you.
