Lost 

I feel lost today

And I hope that no one can see

The sadness behind my eyes as the ground beneath my feet is swept away

My heart breaks moving from one place to the next

I am so tired of smiling…and pretending to be ok

I just want to be alone

My foundation is gone

As I move on to another temporary place

I just hope my sadness is hidden behind the smile plastered on my face

Rotten 

I wake up and I live

I wake up and give

What’s left of what I have inside

The darkness took a chunk of who I am

I can no longer pretend to be whole when I am not

I may have missing pieces but I have not forgotten

That sometimes a person is just born rotten
