Lies

May 13, 2008
By samantha justice, Aurora, CO

I wear a mask
A mask with a smile
But all the while
I’m crying inside
So stuff it all inside my mask
So I don’t have to hear them ask
What’s wrong?
Are you ok?
Not like they care anyway so
I hide
All my feelings
Inside
But as I look threw the fogy
Haze of my tears
That I’ve cried
I sit here wondering
What if
They knew my
Lies

I've felt EXACTLY the same way multiple times, wonderful, fabulous BEAUTIFUL poem! It seems like you write just when you should, when the feeling is most strong.
