Stop Lying

'Stop lying' I scream to no one

The house is silent

I can hear the crickets chirping

And a dog barking

Tears stream down my face in shame

As my hands fly to my hair, tugging on it, trying to feel the pain it brings

Pain

Pain distracts me

It helps me focus

My inner demons scream in my skulk

Making me feel weaker and weaker

But they are the only ones who are honest with me

They tell me what I look like

How pathetic I really am

Everyone else lies

Everyone tells me I'm skinny

Pretty

Happy

Cool

But they all lie

They always lie

But my inner demons

They all tell the truth

They help me see just how worthless I am

'Stop lying' I scream to no one
