I am okay. I am fine.

A: alone

P: pitiful

P: pretending

Does she know I feel empty sometimes? To the point where I have no motivation left in me. She thinks when I lock myself in my room I'm a typical teen who wants my own space but that’s not the case. Sometimes it tears me to pieces.


She wishes I was different. I do too. She wishes I could do everything right. I do too.
