Masked

Meganmnmby M. N. Mattingly 21 Sep 2017

Forgotten, lost in a sea of hopeless lies
Masked by smiles that hide the broken ties

Happy ever afters, and sun filled days of joy
What of them? Now that my world has been destroyed

What of trust? Trust leads to broken confidence
What of friendship? It leads only to painful incidents

Empty words from those with empty hearts
Have driven my own heart into a million parts

Now no longer can my life be pieced together
I have born the torments and the scars will last forever

But these wounds of mine I will not let them show
Not to the ones that have struck me with their blows

Masked as I have said, veiled with smiles I will be
And the world will never know what it has done to me
