The Truth Within Me


I remain behind the curtains to hide my true emotions,

I remain behind the curtains to block malignant intentions.

I hide the truth so no one knows 

Who i really love the most.


Though content and cheerful I depict to be,

My heart is shouting with intensity.

I desire that people could read my eyes

To know that I don't lead a perfect life.


Suspicious and weary I actually am

To lock the gate that protects my heart.

Strong and brave I'll always be

And you will never know the truth within me.
