A/N: Not very fond of the first four lines of this poem but the rest is alright ^-^
Pseudo Facies means False Face, False Form or False Shape. You decide which one fits this poem the best
As I cut myself, I tell myself I'm not trying to hurt you
As I cut myself you all shout "Attentions seeker, manipulator, you got blood on the carpet!"
True enough, I got blood on the carpet.
I also got the pain out, would you rather I hated you all?
I'll wear a smile for you, although it's a lie
It is a lie you want to hear
The true smile I had before is gone
This smile's just a mother-fucking substitute
You were the ones who cared, who knew me
Soon, I'll be cast away in the sea of life
Still, you try to suppress me, push me into the background
Borne through the suffering, I'm still wearing this smile
The smile is ground down though, put through my darkness
The smile I wore for you is gone
I've shed my smile like a second skin
Now, you see the real me, pain in my eyes
"What's wrong with you?" They all ask
"You pushed me too far, my smile hangs in tatters"
