What you see isn't always the truth! Let me know what you think! (I had to use those annoying lines to break it up into stanzas, since Booksie is being a total pain!)

With folded hands,

by the dinner table she sits!


Cool, calm and collected.


'Oh, that girl! She's so sweet! Always a smile on her face!',

great aunt Olga beams!

No one knows the bitter truth!


In her room,

when nobody's in sight,

the mask comes off,

and what's revealed is

her own true colours!


Insanity, pain and rage!


Imagine if someone saw her then!

What would they all think?

They'd be utterly surprised!

How can such a sweet girl scream?
