Not All That Meets The Eye

Location

One of the brightest students

they call me

though they do not see the darkness

clouding my mind

 

Want to make everyone happy

they say about me

though they do not see

that I can't make myself happy

 

She is just so involved

the notice about me

though they do not see me break down

on nights I have too much to handle

 

She can handle so much

they think as they give me more

though they dont notice my grades

slipping as I crumble under pressure

 

She is so confident

they think as they see me walk by

though they do not see the vicious words

carved into my skin under this fabric

 

I am so glad we have her here

they think about me

though they dont know that the pressure

makes me not want to go one
