behind this smile

why cant i just leave it alone
i pick and i pick and i pick
until it becomes a festering wound


i get upset
at the things i do to myself
i try to hide it from you


so i laugh and i smile
my pain clenched tight in my hand
no need for you to see


no need for you to know
i am hemorrhaging inside
unbearably, uncontrollably


it will hurt for a bit
then i will become numb
again
