open your eyes and look inside,
can you see the pain that I'm trying to hide?
I run and run but there is nowhere to go.
is anyone listening? does anyone know?
with each new step that I force myself to take,
there is a brand new smile that I have to fake.
look at these circles beneath my eyes,
they're from all my pain, and all your lies.

I like that a lot. I love how the words flow and just the feeling that it gives me. I mean I've been there in the place of wondering and pain and having to fake smiles...its not easy...this poem has a personal effect on me and I really love that in poems
