Visage


Pounding and slashing



Blow after blow



Weaker and weaker



Yet not for show



 



My mask remains untouched



Strong and unfaltering



I stand tall



Externally unchanged



 



My greatest act of deception



My greatest lie



Image is everything



It must not die



 



My heart bleeds a thick red



Internally coated



Internally flawed



Internally contained



 



Yet slowly but surely



Drip after drip



I bleed out dry



And the world knows my lie
