And just for thought...
What I want you to say I will never hear.
You see something in my eyes and know what it is
But you will never acknowledge the words.
When I tell you that I am fine,
What I want you to hear is that I am not.
I need to you to read between my lines
Instead of taking me at face value.
All I want is for you to take my hand
And hold my chin up when it falls low
But you are content on watching only what is on my surface.
When I am not looking, my hand cradles my head
And you stand on the side away from me,
Not seeing that you could pick me up if you just reached for me once.
What I want you to do, I will never feel.
You see a sadness around me and know you can help
But you will never acknowledge the words I need you to say.
I am strong and confident
But I still need someone to tell me I am going to be fine.
When I tell you that I do not need help
What I want you to hear is that I do.
At the end of the day, I'm just a girl who has been in love with writing her entire life. I am full of quirks, anxieties, fears, joys, laughter. And all I have wanted to do was give the world a smile.
