Title: My Life

Poem: No one knows
No one looks beyond the face
No one sees the tears behind the eyes
The cries of help behind the mouth
The tears running down behind the cheeks
Everything wants to be in front
But those things must stay hidden
No one can see the pain
Yet, the pain wants to be seen
Those tears that want to come out
when someone asks how I am
But no one asks a second time
They see fake eyes with no tears
They see a perfect, broken smile
They see a silly, frivolous girl
just like everyone else
But they are wrong...
