I Never Thought I'd Stand for This

These are the pieces

held together with lies,

promising myself that I'm alright.

Truth be told, I'm falling apart,

and either no one is noticing

or they just can't be bothered.

I am scavenging scraps of attention

knowing full well that I'm not even wanted.

Hiding my tears, my shaking hands,

hiding the disaster I know I am.
