Summary: What does she hide behind the smiles?

I am nothing. I lie, hide behind smiles, tell my friends nothing is wrong.

They do not know. I am happy, cheerful. I laugh.

I do not tell them that I cry in my sleep, or of my nightmares where I wake up and I am all alone.

They think that I am the most stable. Friend Raven hates herself for being her fathers daughter, Beast Boy wishes everyday that he could have saved Terra, Cyborg does not think he is worthwhile, and Robin believes that he is to be in the shadow of his instructor for the rest of his life.

I am there for all of them. I listen to them and comfort them.

But who will comfort me?
