Just A Cover Up

You may see me in nothing in black,
That doesn't mean my heart and soul is black too,
its just makeup.
Just a small cover up.
If you want to know the real me,
Look into my eyes...
nothing hides.
My smile hides my pain,
of all the rude remarks that are thrown my way,
my sleeves hide all the scars,
of when times got to tough.
And my room is where i go,
When the going gets rough.

    The challenge to really know a person is always a good thing to write about. I find myself drawn to this poem, even though I don't usually like sad poems. The first line I had trouble understanding. Are you physically in black or wearing black? I know this is rather nitpicky, but here are some spelling corrections. Third to last line "too tough", and last line "rough". If you want to leave it the way it is, that is fine too. I sometimes purposely alter words or leave mistakes.
