Dark Facade

By , Phoenix, AZ
Every day you look at me and see a smile on my face,
so you think nothing is wrong,
but that I know is not the case.

Behind the lies and fake smiles,
are sins and tragedies you couldn't even imagine.

The pain I feel inside is more than you will ever know,
the tears threaten to break free,
but I will never let my true emotions show.

The darkness sits in the back of mind,
constantly reminding me that I am no one.

The face of a stranger stares back at me from my reflection,
it takes the form of a hideous demon,
spreading through out my body like an infection.

Who will save me from the darkest depths,
of my sickly twisted mind that I can no longer control?

Oh that's right no one,
because I put up this facade so nobody would know,
and once it's begun it cannot be undone.

Wow. This is so beautiful. In such a depressing way. You literally wrote down who I am in just one poem.  :/
