The Show

January 21, 2011

Every time I say I'm fine,
Every time I play the jester.
Often when I smile,
often when I let my heart fester.
Always when you slip my mask,
always when I instantaneosly claim to feel better.
Not when he let me go,
not when you try to find my heart, the slippery absconder.
No longer if you stayed by me,
No longer let my tears mingle in the water.
