My feelings I threw into a box, too big for me.
So I created a mask, made of all the tears I've shed.
I know I know  how cliche that sounds.

You asked, you asked “Are you ok?”
But you didn't want an answer.
Instead you wanted to be smiled at, and say in a plastic voice “I’m fine, you?”
Because you wanted to talk about yourself.

The feelings you had were apparently superior to mine.
Apparently I am just here as a blank slot.
To be played and then left because I ‘gave nothing’.

The time limit for you to care lasts a minute, and then you’re off.

“This ‘you’ isn't the person that we want to deal with.”
“Be happy, or we’ll stop being around you.”
“I've always been there for you!”
“Stop being so depressing.”
“Stop crying.”
“Wimp”
I can't help but feel this way around my friends...

COMMENTS AND FAVORITES ARE LOVED!~

And crying does not make you a wimp. I have done it many times in my life. It makes you real. I understand what you are saying. You are not a lone.

So many times I've felt like this, but at some point I've decided to impose myself. "Impose" as in, talking about me, not just listening to all the "great" things my friends do. You are as important as anyone else in this world and there's no reason why you shouldn't feel like you're not :hug:

it's not your fault, I've been told that I've been a freak most of my life and a child also. I hide because I'm afraid of getting hurt again.

This is totally what I feel at times- especially when it comes to people I know because they don't want to see the 'sad' side of me. If this is how you feel too- :hug:
