What do you see when you look at me?
Do you see someone who is happy as can be?
Did you ever think that that's what I want you to see?
In truth my feelings don't comply.
I had learned the skill by being a spy.
The mask I wear is very convincing.
I can tell because you never seem to be wondering.
Did you ever think about how lonely I truly feel?
Of course not, for the mask I have managed to steal fools you in every way.
But until someone notices like this I will stay.
I do not know how to change it or how to feel better.
I only know the walls I have used as cover.
To you I am bright and full of promise, but truthfully I can't if you're right.
For I sit there holding the tears back tight.
I am alone but you'll never know, because my mask hides all.
It even hides the few tears that have managed to fall.
