A Poem by Debbie

Darkness invades, my life should no be this way. There is a black cloud about my head, my thoughts start to overtake. I fake a smile so you think I'm fine. The truth is that I am dying inside. I fear that you will see right through it. It is just easier on me if you think that I am fine. I don't want to tell you what is really wrong. Please don't ask questions. Don't look me in the eyes, because then you will see the pain that I try so very hard to hide. I laugh all day, but what you won't see is the tears that come at night. Everyone thinks that I am strong, but inside I feel so very weak. Every morning is a struggle, every night I toss and turn, then there is daylight outside my window. Most days I just want to stay in bed, but I can't because then you will think something is wrong. My life is invaded by darkness.
