Hiding True Feelings

Sometimes I'd rather smile then cry
make pretend everything's fine
Look at the smile on my face
feel the pain in my eyes
hiding true feelings sucks
but its better then showing them off.
Laugh and smile
but in pain inside
lock yourself in a bathroom
break down, and start to cry
see yourself in the mirror
and finally you realize
that the person you're trying to be
isnt who you really are.
sometimes you try to be strong
but it takes a real person to cry
thats why i do it behind doors
no one needs to see my tears fall.
i dont let people see me cry
but they never look within
because even though my smile is out there
my eyes show the real pain inside.
if you looked into my eyes
you will see the misery
i'd rather keep it to myself
cause sharing it might cause grief.
take my pain to the grave
and pretend everythings okay
if pain tries to catch up
im just going to runaway.

    Very touching write my poet friend.. I wrote "In the Rain" which kinda says a little of what you say
