Take The Stage

by, Cassandra

I hide behind a smile, as cliché as it sounds
A lame excuse to keep you out
I make you laugh so I won't cry
It's almost as crystal clear as a murky pool
At least to me, if not to you
I play insane so you won't see
How deep my wounds could really be
I've closed myself up, but you don't want in
So, as much as it hurts
I'll take the stage...
As the only face that you can see
