i have to hide it.
i have to hide it. the pain.
i have to hide it. the pain. i must hide it to survive.
i am weak.
i am weak. [this is what the voices scream]
the smile hurts.
the smile hurts. then again, everything hurts now.
it hurts. walking.
it hurts. walking. talking.
it hurts. walking. talking. breathing.
but most of all, it hurts to be alive.
my heart is hidden
my heart is hidden hidden underneath barriers
of ice and cold
of ice and cold and darkness.
see, honey, you tore me apart piece by piece and i'm hiding the fractured shards behind my frozen smile.
