You Don't Understand

© Psychology and Philosophy

Published: June 2021

You don't understand, you never do. I try to explain, but I can't get through to you. I tell you the truth that I feel so depressed, but you say I'm okay. I thought you would know best. So I sit in my room, locked in my personal hell, while you pretend it's all good and I do as well. But I'm not okay, and my friends know that, too, but you can't seem to see what is right in front of you. You say it's a phase, blame my friends for it all, but you don't understand that this is not their fault. I can't live like this. I can't live this life, and as much as I tried, I can't end it with a knife. I know you've been through this, that you ached so much more, but I can't help but wonder don't you know me at all!? I thought you would get it, why I'm acting this way, but you don't listen to what I have to say. You just ignore me, pretend I'm alright. I want this to end. I feel like I might... but I'm not as strong as I'd like to be, so I'll act all normal while I wait patiently for my time to come and I hope that it's soon. My friends understand; I wish you could, too. But you don't understand, and I know it's not fair, but sometimes I feel like you don't even care. I feel all alone, but I know that's not true. I have all my friends, but I wish I had you. I know with my friends I'll make it through this, even though it feels like my life's falling to bits. You don't understand. You never do, but I hope with their help I can make it through
