some days


there are some days

like today

when i just feel numb

there is an ache of hurt inside me

which i become used to too soon

and its as if im nothing

but a body and a mind

not caring about opinions

or what people

think of me



i cut myself out

and every cut

every app uninstalled

every connection broken to the outside world

makes my breaths come easier


i want to be sad

i want to be quiet

some days

i just want to be alone


are these down days?

no, i consider these mental health days

all the sadness and hurt and worry

pushed and built up inside me

i let it all out

and it feels oh so great

i feel burden-less at the end


no, i am not sad because of something that happened yesterday or today

i feel sad a lot

this is just the one day i show it

and i would rather not give an explanation

one of two which i can reply with

one, you wouldn’t understand

the other, is not true


so let me

let me be

let me take a day off

its not easy being happy all the time

its not easy being the light all the time

its     not     easy

s m i l i n g

every time something cuts my heart


you know that I bounce back fast and happy

but that takes a toll on me

not letting my feelings out

pushing them in and smiling

replying I’m fine every time someone asks

how i am

i don’t understand how

you believe that im invincible

to negative feelings

i don’t understand myself


i manage to smile and jump

greet everyone excitedly

with a pitch in my voice



my voice is on the edge of c r a c k i n g

almost wavers

but you never notice the off balance

in the end of my word


i love you, my friend, i do

i love you all


but some days


i would rather you leave me alone
