A Vintage Painting

I wake up and go to school and work

Its a never ending cycle

As I lay on my bed, is this it?

I lay on my bed and try to sleep

Days and nights as I lay flat on my pillow

Tears falling like theres no tomorrow

Scars on my heart manifest on my arms

No one knows the void I feel inside

Because all they see is my smile

 

I wake up and go to school and work

Its a never ending cycle

Someone wake me from my deep slumber

Even though I am wide awake

Someone please notice my facade of laughter

Deep through the recess of my heart

I long for someone to muster and know

I don’t want any of your pity mister

All I want is someone to notice

I am broken but not shattered

I don’t need any fixing

Just someone to know my value

Like a vintage painting

People may come and go

Some take notice some ignore

Little did they know

I am a masterpiece
