"Why can't someone see the darkness I hide behind my smile?" A poem about how I need a hero to save me from myself </3

Hero

Why can’t someone see the darkness I hide behind my smile?

Why can’t they see the marks on my arms, shoulders, thighs…

Why can’t someone see the word “help” I carved into my leg last week?

Why can’t they see the word “hate” I carved just yesterday?

Most of my real friends are overseas, or a long distance away.

The friends I have here, in my everyday life, just don’t see.

They’re focusing on what matters to them, and that’s great.

I just don’t understand why I don’t matter to them.

I do everything I can to help them, which means putting on my brave face.

But even I need a hero to stand by my side and show me I matter.

Just one person to show me I’m loved.

I need a hero.
