I sleep with a teddy, because i need something to hold.
I talk to myself, because i don’t believe anyone else wants to hear.
I cry on the inside, because on the outside i won’t be a burden.
I smile when i am sad, so no one asks how i am feeling.
I keep to myself, because in loneliness i don’t bother you with my problems.
I am walled off from the world, because i don’t know how else to cope.
