My Blue Dress

I never seem able to stop a fall, my life is just a mess

Even though I don't look it- smiling in my blue dress

I comb my hair and keep it down, something I never did

The secret behind it? I can keep my face well hid

My smile, and my kind words mean nothing, no not these days

And on the outside, though I may seem stable, my body discretely sways

I cannot handle the weight on my back but bear it with a grin

Though on the inside I lost the game, on the surface I appear to win

At night I'll curl into myself and cry until I'm asleep

Yet in front of people-smile. I smile so they can't see me weep

    This is quite unique. Makes one curious to know what inspired you to write it. What things are making you sad!
