    dotson becoming a liardots

    When I was a kid they told me as a kid that monsters weren't real;
    that if I didn't believe in them they couldn't hurt me.
    I learned to lie by example.

    I smile at everyone till my teeth hurt.
    Yellowed by all the deception,
    and honestly
    it's more of a grimace these days.
    A gesture to prove I have teeth.

    I tell everyone I'm okay.
    My roommates, my lovers, my parents,
    the councilor I always said I'd go to but never did ...
    my friends, my goldfish, my rats,
    the complete strangers who are staring at me.
    I assure them that I'm fine.

    I say it and I ignore all the signs that things might just be falling apart.
    I push aside all the thoughts of clinical things like manic-depression
    and why all the pills on tv that say they'll make everything better
    but also say they might just make me want to kill myself.
    I take the pink ones that help me sleep.

    When I was child they told me the monsters were only in my head.
    Well, that part might have been true.

      This was a fairly easy read. Part of that is probably because it was written almost as a monologue- something that could be heard in conversation. I also found it funny that you mentioned your pets in it. Good job.
