I’m Hiding

Can no one see this smile I’m faking,

See how, inside I’m constantly shaking?

These people all claim they know me well,

Yet no one can see through my crumbling shell.

 

“I’m fine”, I whisper, my sadness unknown,

They leave me to deal with this anguish alone.

I’ve hidden behind this wall most of my life,

I’ve manages so far, I’ve dealt with my strife.

 

Watching as, slowly, my blood leaks away,

It helps to keep life’s true horrors at bay.

I pull down my sleeve to cover my hurt,

For approaching footsteps, I’m on the alert.

 

I guess me pretense is just all to real,

No one has to know of the pain that I feel.

The real me inside, where no one can see,

I can fool everyone else,

Why can’t I fool me?

  1. BECAUSE NO MATTER WHAT WE DO,WE OURSELVES KNOW THE TRUTH AND WE CAN NOT HIDE FROM OURSELVES. IM SORRY U ARE GOING THRU THIS KINDA STUFF. AND WHAT WE DO TO OURSELVES TO RELEASE THE TENSION,FRUSTRATION,AND ANGER ONLY LEAVE MORE SCARS FOR US TO DEAL WITH.
