She sits there
And she's smiling
And no one knows what she has locked inside her heart
The breeze blows her hair away from her face
And she laughs a tiny crystal laugh
But no one can feel the pain that tears her to pieces inside
The sun twinkles in her eyes
And she joyously waves her hands when she talks
Her voice chirping like the songs of sparrows
But no one can see that she's crying
They see her smile
They hear her laugh
They listen to her happy stories
Of a life that has caused her so much pain
No one notices her soul shriveling up
And turning to dust
No one notices her wasting away before their eyes
No one notices she's dying

wow, amazing work Flidais... too many people are in that situation, best thing to do is talk it out with a friend. Great work and welcome!!

Sometimes i wanna burst into tears and instead a pull out a little laugh...till im pen is my friend thats where i get all my feelings out and he doesnt tell me how wrong i am he just listens. oh and everyone here at passions always has something good to say   that kinda helps

Incredible peice. Makes me wonder how many people that I talk to in a day are wearing masks of emotion.

Wow.  This really reminds me of myself.
I wrote a poem along the same lines as this amazingly inciteful piece. It is caled "Actress". I'll have to dig it out for you.

Anyway, Welcome to Passions.

If the rest of your work is anything as good as this, I guarentee, I'll be reading.

Welcome to Passions!

Your words are written with an acute sense of feeling and pain, showing the world one side and keeping the other locked up tight.  I too have lived this and through poetry have begun to open the door now and then, the more I look into my soul the more I release and set free through poetry.  I hope that you are able to find the same release and comfort.  This was a sincere and heart felt piece.  Thank you for sharing it.

 Whatever strength I add to myself becomes my greatest weakness, while whatever weakness I'll consciously endure will be replaced with a strength that is not my own.
