Today her parents ask how her day has been
By now the answer has been well rehearsed
She insists to them that everything is fine
But the reality is the reverse

In fact she’s the antonym of the word ‘fine’
Inadequate, unsatisfactory
This is due to her creatively cursed mind
Steeped in a world of such simplicity

Yesterday friends asked how she has been coping
Waiting for their turn to talk, do they care?
They just see a happy, contented princess
Not a pensive, vacant, glazed over stare

In fact she’s the opposite of contented
Restless and at war with reality
Battling feelings of alienation
From unsupportive friends and family

Tomorrow strangers will ask her what is wrong
But in white lies she has become well versed
Knowing that the tar black pit of torrid truth
Will not dilute and only make things worse

She’s living the antonym of the word ‘truth’
But her lies are not designed to betray
Just to cover the cracks and to smother those
Who aren’t part of her daily masquerade
Thank you to my good friend Lena :iconmexicanpedo: for inspiring me to write this with her wonderful gif [link]

Both her and Dzeni (who share the account together) are extremely talented, two of my favourite deviants and should definitely be checked out.

thank you :)

There are moments that you are just taken aback and you can't particularly comprehend your own feelings. I have to admit, this is definitely one of those moment.
While reading I empathized and I couldn't decide whether she should be proud of how she strong she is for holding everything in or how the void will continue eating away what's left of her heart. It amazes me how brave she is, but at the same time it worries she might just try to get use to that unhealthy lifestyle until her sanity dissolves.

Oh don't mind me, I'm just really thinking of some people and how it drives me crazy that they don't realize that they don't have to be martyrs all the time...but you complicated

Once again, you're writing astounds me! It almost seems like every time I read your poems, it hits me with revelation (and it pretty much attunes to what's happening to me). Thank you! Gah I'm so talkative!

:) i love your comments and how you are so talkative.

it's really nice that you can relate too. Obviously not great that you have been in some of the situations but good to know that other people go through similar things.

thanks so much again :)

I have know that feeling of lying to those who only pretend to care. they would never understand how someone is truly feeling so why waste your breath trying to explain.

it is a beautiful moment when you find someone who does listen and does genuinely care. They dont come around very often though.

thanks for the comment :)
