I Just Want to be Alone

I can’t take this anymore.

I can’t pretend

it doesn’t hurt anymore.

You’ve damaged my soul

beyond repair.

Please don’t talk to me

because I will

break down into tears.

And I won’t let you

see me cry.

I won’t let you see

what you have done to me.

My laughter has

been replaced

by constant whimpering.

My smiles have been

turned upside down.

I see no end in sight

to this pain.

Wonderful descriptive write of true emotion. It is not easy to let your spirit free enough to show the true pain. I sincerely hope that things are better for you now and your smiles have now turned right side up.
