Behind the Mask

By Kryssie   

I hide behind a mask of smiles everyday,
So you can't see the pain that I lock away

This disguise is worn so you will never know,
The amount of guilt that consumes my broken soul

Her suffering is a sick movie that endlessly plays on repeat,
Destroying any forgiveness that I so desperately seek

My tears flow freely when no one is around,
Stealing my breathe with every intent to drown

Hopelessness fills my lungs with despair,
But I fight to keep you blissfully unaware

Shattered and lost is my eternal fate,
For I am too far gone to ever be saved
