An emptiness hard to hide

Cam00730by Beautiful Felon26 Mar 2014

I have this emptiness inside of me
that I noticed long ago,
sometimes it remains hidden
and other times it starts to show,
I try to keep it covered up
like masking an unwanted pain,
wearing a fake smile to shut the world up
seems rather insane,
I don't know what else I should attempt
because it's coming back so fast,
its hard to hide emptiness
behind such a simple mask,
an unwanted familiar
empty pain deep inside,
that seems to only show itself
when I really want for it to hide...
