Nobody knows

I can’t begin on what’s going through my head
One minute I’m okay, the next I wish I was dead.
Nobody knows how different I am
The outside of me is not afraid
Not full of pain, or even ashamed
I smile and all of those ignorant fools believe
Of course nothing could be wrong with me
My eyes are dry, I do not shed tears
For that gift was taken away from me dear
I laugh and talk and play along
Keep on existing as if nothings wrong
Nobody knows how different I am
The inside of me is hollow and empty
Do not fret my dear, for I do not want your pity
I'm tattered and broken beyond repair
My heart is crumbling and full of despair
I'm bloodied and beaten and not really living
I just go through the motions and continue existing
I'm scared and lost, clueless as can be
Is there no one out there to help me

Nobody knows how different I am
And that will never change

    Lost-but-not-broken, well written poem, but the last two lines are wrong. One, we here on MPS know that you are different, otherwise you would not be posting poems, and two we don't know the future. One day there will be that very special person who will love you and whom you will love. Take it from an old guy. I just know it will happen.
