Trying

197 2 2

I'm not trying hard enough

you say

I'm not worth your time of day.

I'm trying too hard to forget

you say

I'm too busy hiding my pain.

I'm not trying to be better

she says

I'm not her perfect angel.

I'm trying too hard to fight against her

she says

I'm too busy dying in vain.

I'm not trying to stop myself

he says

I'm not done being this way.

I'm trying too hard to feel

he says

I'm too much like an already dead girl.

I'm not trying to keep the pain inside

I say

I'm not in that kind of pain.
