I sat alone before my computer screen. That was the only substance that was seeing me. My face was smaller than usual. Slowly a timid, warm tear rolled down my eye. No one saw me. I stuffed my ears with headphones. Above that sound I could hear the sound of loud laughter behind. I didn't turn. I cried alone but didn't turn. No one will ever know, no one cares enough to know.
I miss you ma.
