My Mask

I scotch tape my emotions
I wipe the tears from my eyes
I reapply my makeup
I shield myself from the lies.
I throw on my mask
I plaster a smile on my face
I no longer have a broken heart,
just an empty space.
I build up a wall
I surround it with guards
I tell them your forbidden
and to never let you enter again.
I keep on my mask
I keep my upside down frown
I keep myself perfect
But only when others are around
I’m tired of this masquerade
I’m tired of pretending everything is okay
I wash my smile away;
Finally! This mask, I can now escape.
