I watch.

Day by Day.

My scars fade.

So do I.

I want to be left alone.

But I want you to know I'm hurting.

I will not scream for help.

I will not ask.

I will not whisper.

I will show you.

Look into my eyes,

See my pain.

As I am silent.

You have to hear my actions.

Look behind the smile.

Behind the laugh.

You have to see my voice.

Hear my actions.

Listen to what I'm doing.

You will hear my cries.

My screams.

You will hear my sadness.

But please do not take it.

It's all I have.

All I am.
