Poem about a lady who is guarded, reserved and defensive

Hidden behind her cold and hateful mask

Is a lady pretending to be strong

Someone to love and care is all she ask

I tried to unmask her but I was wrong


Hidden behind her pretty smiling face

Is a lady that is barely breathing

Broken up inside with no warm embrace

And a crippled heart that is still bleeding


Hidden behind her sweet, angelic eyes

Are the tears she cried in the falling rain

In the dark, truth held together with lies

She gave her heart but it was all in vain

I’m hoping for her eyes to turn my way

If only I knew the right words to say
