Masks

That smile I see,

Plastered on your face,

It is not real,

I should know,

I once wore one myself,



 

I can hear the hints of sadness,

As you chirp away,

The little breaking moments,

When you don’t know what to say.

The deepness behind your eyes,

The shaky feeling in your hands.


 

That smile I see,

Plastered on your face,

It is not real,

I should know,

I once wore one myself,



 

I can see the pain inside you,

Waiting to explode,

There is no real smile,

Not the one that glowed.

That pain raging inside you,

Let it out to me.


 

That smile I see,

Plastered on your face,

It is not real,

I should know,

I once wore one myself.


 

I can help you,

Set you free,

A little bit of pain

Can’t hurt me.

Share your sorrows,

Sharing mine to you sure helped me


 

That smile I see,

Radiating on your face,

Is real,

I can see.

That’s what a bit of friendship can achieve
