My Greatest Disguise

Location

Tears remain
I pretend
Fake a smile
'Til day's end
 
Feelings bottled up
Covert crying
I am broken
Inside I'm dying
 
An emptiness
A hole
Gone, is my heart
Along with my soul
 
Acting fine
Looking strong
Falling apart
Barely hanging on
 
Takes all I have left 
To maintain my disguise
What lies within
My stifled cries
