I look around me
See I am not alone
I am lonely among all
No one sees my pain
I hide it inside me
No one sees my tears
I wipe them away
I bury my fears
I don’t open myself
For another blow to my soul
Would surely end me
Love is but a dream
Not ever in my life
Pain suffering coexist in me
I am not me anymore
I have disappeared gone
I hide behind a mask
Seeing but not a part
Existing but not living
I hide my pain, tears, and fears
I will not show them
I will not share them
Please save yourself
Let me go let me fade

    The solitude of your poem is very touching, and the escape to isolation almost painful to read. But thanks for sharing, Teresa, and I wish that the solitude be change to solace...

    Finnally it has changed to solace and more self assured. Thank you David.
