Walking in the room today I felt it.
I felt your heart beat and drop father than it has ever before.
I heard the silent gasping you are doing just so you don't drown.
The unheard screams of "help me"that go unnoticed.
Unnoticed because your smile is one that can brighten any room, or any mood.
Sometimes I have to remind myself that you are hurting.
I know you are.
You hide it so well that even parts of your own mind seem to be ignorant of your pain.
But I see it.
I see you.
You are not invisible, your crys and gasps are not going unheard.
I know you have been ignored by so many people who see your broken soul and turn away.
You may think you are alone but you are not.
I will wait
Wait until you are ready to cry phyisical tears and scream until your throat burns. Just like you have been rehearsing in your mind for so long now.
I am ready when you are.
I am here.
