My Greatest Disguise


Tears remain
I pretend
Fake a smile
'Til day's end
Feelings bottled up
Covert crying
I am broken
Inside I'm dying
An emptiness
A hole
Gone, is my heart
Along with my soul
Acting fine
Looking strong
Falling apart
Barely hanging on
Takes all I have left 
To maintain my disguise
What lies within
My stifled cries
