Don’t Mind Me

By Jackson   

Don't mind me, I'm just sitting here
just trying to wipe away these tears,
putting on my "precious" smile,
I've been doing that for quite awhile.
Don't mind me, I'm just thinking,
I'm just wondering,
how to get these demons away.
This is just something I do everyday.
Don't mind me, I'm just standing outside,
preparing myself to act like the girl who hasn't died inside,
and you don't even have a clue,
that I'm no longer the person you knew.
Don't mind me, I'm just coming up with a lie,
one saying I'm fine, and that I truly feel alive,
but really I'm depressed,
and I'm just nothing but a mess.
Don't mind me I'm just pulling down my sleeve,
to hide all the times my demons took control of me,
and to hide what I did to myself,
and what my brain has done to itself.
Don't mind me, I'm just a broken girl who use to have dreams,
and now it seems,
all I can get are nightmares,
because I know, nobody cares.
