Because I love you.

Because I love you.

A Poem by Naomi Roseღ
"

:/

"
I say I am okay.

I keep my real emotions
hidden away.

I smile and laugh with
my friends, even though
its all a lie. 

Inside, I am dying slowly.

Inside, I am ripping myself
apart every day.

On the inside, I am crying. 

I mentally abuse myself
to keep you safe.

I don't want to.

You don't want me to. 

But I do it because I
love you.

First of all, it's not BAD. :) It's very real and thought provoking, esp the line I mentally abuse myself
to keep you safe."

I have been there right in the midst of that very powerful thought/emotion.

Pain and pleasure. Can confuse the two sometime. Sometime hard to express emotion and need. Must demonstrate by act that sometime do very little. Many people suffer and have no way for the pain to escape. Better to look for anything but
"On the inside, I am crying.

I mentally abuse myself
to keep you safe."
Thank you for the powerful poem.
