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
