I'm Hiding Deep Inside

Can no one see this
smile I'm faking,
See, how, inside,
I'm constantly
These people all
claim they know me
Yet no one can see
through my crumbling

"I'm fine", I
whisper, my sadness
They leave me to
deal with this
anguish alone,
I've hidden behind
this wall most of my
I've managed so far,
I've dealt with my

Watching as, slowly,
my blood leaks away,
It helps to keep
life's true horrors
at bay,
I pull down my
sleeve to cover my
For approaching
footsteps, I'm on
the alert,

I guess my pretense
is just all too
No one has to know
of the pain that I
The real me inside,
where no one can
I can fool everyone
else, but why can't
I fool me?
