Behind Closed Doors

November 15, 2008
By Fayth Starr, Richmond Hill, ZZ

Walking outside
Opens my mind
I try to shake off the pain,
Because I have something to hide
You have never seen the other part of my life
Because I put it away
You think my world is perfect
And that I always have sunny days
But you really don’t know what I go through
Because I smile, like I have nothing to loose.
But you should know
That behind that smile, there is a frowning pain
And behind those big bright eyes
There is darkness
I feel like I have a double personality
As I never let my mouth spill out the reality
I put up a brick wall
Because I would never want you to walk through it
For it doesn’t matter, because I’m not worth your time
Because I am lying, I really don’t shine
When I act a little funny at times
You get suspicious, but I assure you
It’s none of your business
And when you assume things,
When you see pieces of the emotional bruises
I get really ticked,
And I’m tired of making excuses
And as I lie here on the cold floor
I want to let you know
That you never know what happens
Behind closed doors

My best friend Jordan Tocher inspierd me to write my feelings down on paper, and not to keep my emotions botteled up. And i thank her for that, because i feel so much better now. :)<3
