Screaming Pain

I am tired of being subtle
about the pain of my heart
Sick of always holding back the tears
which are always too close to the surface
weary of wearing a mask
of an empty smile upon my face
How I wish someone would care enough
to tear away my veil of pretense
and truly see the hurt
and darkness in my eyes
No longer do I want my torment to whisper to me
alone in the dark so no one else has to hear
I want to run through the streets
screaming at the top of my lungs
See me! Acknowledge me! Hear me!
I am here and I am hurting
But the world is deaf to my cries
it is blind to my pain
It seems I am not meant to be seen nor heard
