I Wouldn't Say it, But it Hurt
Written by: @BloomingFlower03
I wouldn't say it, but it hurt:
Feeling as if I was the enemy
Stepping on shards of broken glass
And losing my way into the shadows.
I wouldn't say it, but it stung:
Battling depression on my own
As if I was the lowest being on Earth
And forced to find other life.
I wouldn't say it, but it burned:
Every bridge I ever made
Either by myself or with strength
Only to be forced to swim without safety.
I wouldn't say it, but it helped:
A small website with the unique name
7 cups of tea
That would eventually become my home.
I wouldn't say it, but it stopped:
The feeling of always being alone
Finally un-invisible to others
And able to start a new slate
