Underneath

A smile, a laugh and positivity. That’s what the world knows me for. I come off as a positive individual and I guess I am. But behind this smile there is hurt, there is pain, there is a longing of else. Inside I just want to fucking scream, AHHHHHHHHHH!! People look at me and say “I wish I had it together like you. I wish I could just be calm about things like you.” Calm, huh. That makes me chuckle. There is always a calm before a storm. Always. I wouldn’t wish that loneliness on anyone. It eats you up slowly and surely. The door opens and a woman sits down. As she settles in, her shaky voice lets the air carry her words to me and says, “”Bless me Father, for I have sinned. It has been a week since my last confession.”
