There are some things that people don't show. People have scars they sometimes want to hide. A life at home they aren't proud of or a hidden fear they hope never sees the light of day.
everyone has something they can't say out loud. Some things are too painful to even write down. I have seen the sides of people that they don't show.
I have seen the broken smiles that they hide behind because they are tired of the endless stream of "are you okay?" because the answer has always been "no.
" Because no, you are not okay when your worst enemy is yourself. you are not okay when looking in the mirror makes you want to throw up.
you are NOT okay when the blade slices through your flesh because it's the only way you can prove to yourself that you are alive.
You are not okay when the thing you hate most stares back at you in the mirror.
I didn't see all their pain before, but now?
I wish I didn't.
