A piece of randomness

Hold back the pain.
Hold in the tears.
They didn't mean it.
This shouldn't hurt.
Forget what they said.
It doesn't matter.
There is no pain.
There are no tears.
Don't feel the hurt.
Don't scream and shout.
Ignore the despair,
Ignited in your heart.
Everything is fine.
Nothing is wrong.
It's all okay.
Don't feel that way.
It's not like it matters.
It was just a few words.
Forget the anger,
The pain,
The hurt,
The knife in your heart.
Pull back the tears.
People are all around.
They'll see you're wounded.
They'll see you're not strong.
You can pull through this.
It's not the first time.
You can stand on your own...
Or at least look the part.
It doesn't matter if you feel you've been pushed in the dirt.
Doesn't matter if you feel like you're falling apart.
You have to look strong.
They'll start lecturing if you don't.
Hold in the tears.
Hold back the pain.

  1. Something tells me this isn't actually "random".... I hope you feel better soon- I was sorry we didn't actually get to chat at any point over the holidays. I hope that things are going (reasonably) well for you right now- if you want to, drop me a line by email and let me know what all is up with you and everything. Love you, E.
