I hate this mask I'm always putting on
I'm so used to it; I've used it for so long
It's so perfect now, you can't tell something's wrong
I'm hiding it so well

You could never tell what hides in this heart
You could never tell its being ripped apart
You'd think it was fine from the start
You'd never know what I'm hiding

I hide it so well, I sometimes fool even me
So I don't really expect, anyone else to see
What I'm hiding, within me so deeply
But it'd be nice to get caught sometimes

Caught with a fake smile, or lying eyes
Caught in one of my many sighs
Maybe this mask is my own demise
I'm killing myself slowly
I haven't posted in forever! Stuff has been happening :( Newest poem. Comments? :)

Thank you to [link] for correcting my mistake. :)

i like the rhyme scheme here :)
In the second to last group of stanzas is "So I don't really except, anyone else to see" supposed to be "So I don't really expect, anyone else to see"? Otherwise great work.

Amazing, yet so true for some people these days. (I'm one of them) I give it to two thumbs up.
