Wearing a mask by Disneyluver
When something bad happens to you,
Whether it be that someone you know died
Or your relationship has gone down the loo,
You have to put on a mask to hide it in some places
Hiding it by putting on a fake smile on your face
No one sees the pain that you hide
They don't see past the mask to your demons inside
They think everything is all right.
The mask hides the pain from their sight
Once the mask is off
it's plain to all
Things aren't as happy as they seem
Sometimes You can't help but bawl.

Author's notes: this was a poem I wrote shortly after I broke up with my (then) boyfriend
