The Smile I'm Faking

Updated on October 26, 2011


Could anyone see the smile I’m faking?

Inside of me I’m constantly shaking

And people say they know me well

But couldn’t see through my darkest shell


I hid behind this wall long ago

And no one knew; my sadness was unknown

I was left living through this anguish alone

Lost in the deepest darkness of despair


The walls and the ceiling was my friend

Alone I wipe this lonesome tears

For many centuries

For many years


My body trembles, my heart is aching

My feeling so numb I could not strive

But continue to pretend

To put on that smile


I guess my pretense was too real

And no one could see what I really feel

I fool my friends, I fool my parent

I fool all people...but I can’t fool me

      I like this, chanroth. Voted up, beautiful, interesting. I can feel the pain and emptiness, and the pictures go along beautifully with it.
