    So this is the first time i've done this, so please be kind :hiding:



    I sit here alone, with nothing but my thoughts.
    They swirl and twist, a memory of sorts.
    Outside I’m still and quiet but I’m screaming, can’t you hear?
    My insides burn and scratch, I’m filled with nothing but fear.

    So I try to match, the inside to the out.
    I burn and scratch, then everyone they shout.
    I try to hide, behind my very own door.
    But they come and come, and then they saw.

    I stand there naked, for them to see.
    But they don’t know how to set me free.
    They see the outside and cry and shout.
    But they don’t see what it’s all about.

    I wanted help and someone to hug.
    But I’m just berated and squished like a bug.
    They’re angry and I’m scared.
    They want to know if I cared.

    Do you love me?
    Yes I do
    Do you love me?
    What am I to do?

    Time speeds by and people live
    But still I sit unable to forgive.
    Those people they are far away.
    And I am scared to see them all today.

    This world is big, and I am small.
    I want to curl, tight in a ball.
    All throughout this crushing pain.
    I sit here, screaming in vain.

    You have expressed yourself so very well and the feeling of self harm by you and by what others see. You are right in saying they don't understand because they just have not felt the pain inside the depth if they did they would not have yelled at you or questioned you love

    Keep writing as you do it so well hugs
