Girl Next Door

More by this author
There will always be a girl
whom you know,
But try to ignore,
Because everyone thinks she's a faux.

But underneath the makeup
and perfectly straightened hair,
lies a girl who is misunderstood
beyond everyone’s compare.

At home it all changes
to what it really is.
The makeup comes off,
the hair begins to frizz.

As soon as the smile washes away
and in comes a tear,
she feels like screaming,
But she knows no one would care enough to hear.

And suddenly that girl you know,
who lives right next door,
Becomes a whole ‘nother person
Who means so much more.

Amazing, you caught the feelings just right. A lot of people do try to pretend they're something they're not, and i agree everyone should just be themselves.

Awesome job, and if you have time would you mind looking at some of my work?

This is very relatable, but the word choice is trying too hard to rhyme.
