I've felt pain

That if you touch me all the glue I've pasted putting myself back together comes apart.

I've felt pain

Like my heartstrings are snapping and all the love I have inside me turns to hate.

I've felt pain

3 AM bawling my eyes out like a hurricane.

I've felt pain

Looking in my father's eyes seeing the hate knowing this man will never love me.

I've felt pain

Gripping my scalp until it burns , because these images are so loud. These thoughts in my head are so foul . Somebody please please get them the fuck out!

I've felt pain

Checking my phone watching seconds turn into minutes and minutes into hours. Of why can't he message me back.

I've felt pain

Doing my hair, fixing my face to an image that seems perfect waiting for a guy who never shows up.

I've felt pain

Studying for a test getting an A but still being unable to digest that yes you deserve that go celebrate. That your teacher didn't make a mistake you earned that.

I've felt pain

Watching someone I love slip out my life. Like what did I do wrong why didn't you say goodbye.

I've felt pain

That even I can't describe.
