I'm A Song

I'm drowning.
I'm drowning in my tears and despair, I'm holding on just barely.
Because nobody can see through my lies, through this persona I hide behind.
I use this pretty face, the dimples, curls, and big blue eyes
This sweet soft spoken voice
This soft skin that blushes at the slightest sound
To make everybody think that I am okay.
But look into my blue eyes
And tell me that you love me
And you'll see the disbelief.
He did that to me.
So while the world keeps spinning around
I'm gonna fall apart
But pretend that I'm okay.
And you won't know the difference.
Would it matter to anybody
If they knew I was drifting away?
I'm so far gone, I can barely see you standing there.
I'm so far gone, I'm on the verge of not really being able to care.
You thought you knew me
Well you were wrong.
Guess I really am
A tragic
Love song.

This was really good. Some of your rhythm seems to slip, but the passion behind the words makes up for that. The technical stuff is nothing to the feeling I got after I read your poem. Keep writing, and remember to keep your head up, you can't always hide.
