I lay on top of sand
Smooth and still
Having no word, no thought, no emotion.
I cover what hides beneath me
The creatures that haunt me
The wrecks long forgotten
but still stab my defenseless heart.
I paint my surface
The glass that moves onward and forever
The color you see glistening on the surface
The waves that flow gracefully to the shore
I paint my face
The smile you see
Will always fade
The hug that I give
May not be given
With all my heart
I may look happy on the outside
But on the inside
I’m being torn apart
I paint my surface
So you’ll never see my heart.


The author's comments:
I wrote this poem when I was having a really hard time at school with friends. I felt kind of masked, like I pretending to be who I was. I compared that idea to an ocean because an ocean has its own secrets, but no one ever sees them, they just see the surface. I really liked this idea because I really like the ocean and the water.
