I am just a girl

I line my eyes with black  liner

I paint my lips a nude pink

To feel pretty

I wear certain clothes

to cover the scars that

cover my body

I style my hair

Because if I leave it alone

It turns into a messy mob

I crush on silly cute boys

and let them toy with my heart

until it breaks

Then I cry myself to sleep

because of the pain

that the heartbreak caused

I sit with my "friends"

and gossip about other girls

I sit with my best friends

and gossip about my "friends"

I hide how I feel because

I don't know how to deal

with how I feel

I avoid relationships

in fear of heartbreak

I hide who I am

in fear of being judged

I don't care

Because it's easier then

    Thank you for sharing you heart. I know it can be really hard, but I hope you find someone who accepts and loves every part of who you are.

    sad but so well expressed. a lot of insecurity is showing up here, a need to cover up and hide yourself but you know wha5 if you show your true self and people don't accept , then they are not worth knowing anyway
