I'm Trying

I'm Trying


Written By: IllegitPrincess


You don't get it, do you?

You say to try, but I'm already trying my hardest.

You say I know, but I don't.

You say I don't do anything, but I do more than you realize.



All the sleepless nights spend lying awake in the dark

Wondering exactly when everything will get better.



All the tears collected on my pillowcases

A flood let loose when I'm alone because I refuse to let you see me cry



All the times I've held my tongue

But you only focus on when I can't



All the times I've fantasized about disappearing

But don't because I know you need me.



I'm trying, mom...I really am...



Yeah...I wrote this after a really bad argument with my mom, but I'm posting almost everything I have, regardless of how personal it is...
