The knife slices my skin deep enough to to take all the pain you’ve given me. Tears flow down, but I make no sound, and then my world comes tumbling down. Down so deep that the metal touches the vein, cutting it, as it goes farther away. Never have I felt this good, so much happiness and control covered in so much pain. I cover the initials of your name, no one see’s all my pain. To them I can never be depressed, never sad, because I’m always hyper, always glad. But now you know the real me, the girl who’s life is hell. Someone is here, ringing the bell. I get a band-aid hurriedly and put it on, my scar that is forming will never be gone. “Hello Family!”, I happily say… It’s the beginning of another sad day…
