12 years and 5 months

12 years and 5 months

A Poem by Arabella Schlitz

Still counting down the days

12 years and 5 months..
596 weeks
4,533 days
108,792 hours

I've been breathing for that long--Pretending
Always pretending around people.
Always faking a smile
If they ever know the truth...

I sometimes think those things:
What if they know?
What will happen?
What will happen to me?

I have gone 12 years and 5 months without telling anyone
Why should I tell them now?
