Underneath

By
Underneath the words and the shame

Underneath the hurt, and the endless pain

Underneath the smile faked all day

Underneath the negativity that gets in the way

Underneath the love she pretends to share

Underneath the girl who tries to care

Underneath the laugh at a mistake

Underneath the reality of which she hates

Underneath the stars shining in her eyes

Underneath the hope that someday she’ll fly

Underneath the chance her dreams will come true

Underneath the person you thought you knew

Underneath the pieces of a broken heart

Underneath a friendship falling apart

Underneath the darkness she tries to hide

Underneath the truth that she really tried

Underneath the thought of a better day

Underneath her hopes all slipping away

Underneath the tears and all of her acts

Is a girl who can only see what she lacks

LOVE IT!! Flows really well, has a rhythm and is very truthful, how there are so many things that you can't show anyone and can't find the words to express, and there are so many appearances and layers over what you truly feel!
