Hear Me

Copyright, Skye

None of them understand,
Why I pushed them back
After I invited them to come closer,
But now I’m terrified.

My feelings are so powerful,
And yet I keep them inside,
Because that’s what everyone around me does,
And it’s all I’ve ever known.

To express feelings is bad.
At least that’s what I’ve learned.
I don’t want to be a bother to anyone,
So I just keep it all in.

“Little Miss Perfect”
That’s what they call me.
But I’m far from perfect,
I just pretend to be.

The marks on my skin,
The pill I took,
I don’t want to be perfect anymore.
I just want to be me.

Have you heard me yet?
