SOMETIMES - TRIGGER WARNING!

Sometimes when I am sad
I like to be quiet and as emotionless as possible
It helps the pain not hurt so much

Sometimes when I am angry
I like to punch things and scream
It helps the pain not hurt so much

Sometimes when I feel my world is breaking
I like to cry, cry, and cry
And then, as I lay there, with no tears left to shed, I just breathe
it helps the pain not hurt so much

And sometimes when the pain seems to be to much to bear
I inflict more pain on myself
Because, for some strange reason,
It helps the pain not hurt so much

And when the days come when it hurts to much to smile
I smile more
So that people don't know I am hurting
But for some strange reason
That makes the pain hurt just a bit more
