YOU DON'T KNOW ME

by BETTY BURTON
(PEARISBURG VA)

We have been friends for years
But you don’t know me
You have no idea
About the pain behind my smile
You’ve never seen the tears
That soak my pillow every night
You would never imagine
The monsters living inside my head
Always arguing with my heart
Bringing me down lower every day
As they win this war
I struggle to be normal
But I’m getting good at pretending
This is my storm
But you don’t know me
Nobody knows me
