I smile, yet I'm crying

I laugh, yet I want to scream

I'm happy, yet I'm miserable

No one has noticed

Not even you

Can't you see I'm dying inside?

I expected you to see my hidden sorrow

I expected you to see through my act

My mask

I wanted you to strip my soul bare

And tell me that even if no one else will, that you care

But no

My mask is still here

And you go on with everyone else in obliviousness

So I will continue to smile

Despite my tears

I will continue to laugh

Despite sorrow

And I will continue to be happy

For you
