"Never say goodbye because saying goodbye means going away, and going away means forgetting"-Peter Pan

Everyday I don my mask
Sometimes it is a torturing task
How does one hate crowds
but fear being alone
I fix my mask and
hope it doesn't crack
Sometimes I cannot tell
wear the mask ends and I begin
My soul is cold
A nightmare inside of me
I hide the monster everyday
I fear it will never be tame
I hide the tears I wish to shed
I hope that soon
Someone will rescue me
from the monsters and the
Some come close to defrosting me
but soon they give up
and walk away
and I turn cold once more
My heart is cold, frosted over
frozen by the fear of the nightmare
The nightmare inside of me
I want to run and hide
from the monster inside
from the nightmare I live
from the past I cannot forget
from the future that is inevitable

This poem is mostly about my feelings after my mother left me. How alone I felt and how mean and violent I got. I'm mostly over it but my struggle with my mother's absence.

I know you doubt it, and I swear, I did too, and sometimes still do, but all ends well and time will tell. Time will heal the things that cannot be mended.
