Jagged Little Pieces

Wed, 10/15/2014 - 14:47 -- JCo.

A solid mask, one set of stone

no emotion, no betrayal

cold, broken, and alone


No smile, no frown

keep it to yourself

we don’t want you around


Neither happiness, nor sorrow

keep your cool

tell me about it tomorrow


I could feel shattered

I could feel joy

to them it doesn’t matter


As long as I tell the lie

as long as I keep in check

who cares what’s behind my eyes


We can’t hold all in apathy

we can’t all be unamused

but no one wants a piece of the real me
