15 February, 2022, past midnight.



Don’t show.

Don’t let them in,

To your world of pain.



Hold still.

Never reveal,

The turmoil within.



Like your life depends on it.

The wolves will eat you

If you let your feelings defeat you.



Put on that smile.

Enjoy that pain.

As it kills you within.


Dead you are born


No more!

What’s there to hide

If you don’t feel the pain


No need for masks,

Your face becomes one

Nothing to feel,

Nothing to hide

Nothing to



~ End ~

    Sad, but sometimes true. We wear many masks, at some point they become our skin. Sometimes it sucks. Sometimes we lose sight of who we actually are anymore.

  • Cathy holmes3 months ago

    Very nicely done.

  • When there is nothing to hide, our lives but open books within which nothing is written.
