Your smile,
Seems so fake.
Your words,
Are hallow thin.
The promises you make,
Can only break.
Even with all the fun times you tried to create,
You knew better than no one else,
That this wasn’t you.

Even so,
How come I can see past your guilt,
Your lies and fake smiles?

I see,
Feel,
Know,
The warmth you give to others.

I simply see you.
The you inside.

Sometimes, even when we know it ourselves, we just don't have the willpower to be who we are.
