Tears that I hold back,

Because I can't stand,

To let them see beneath,

The LIE that is my LIFE.

So I plaster on a fake,

Smile so that they won't,

So that they don't see,

Through the LIE that,

Never seems to end.

Your comment made me laugh, but remember, sometimes it's not the people who stop it, but you yourself, because you may not be able to stop...

this is really amazing.
i may be wrong but i think i can relate, you have to put on a smile and pretend that you don't want to cry because you have to lie to yourself that you don't as well.
even if im wrong this is really good(:
