she can't help but feel it, that sensation of despair

always creeping beneath the barriers of false cheer


she can't help but feel it, that loathing all for herself

always concealed behind a smile which she's painted on with stealth


she can't help but feel it, that yearning to hate the sound of laughter

always threatening her carefully-crafted walls to completely and utterly shatter


she can't help but feel it, that terror as she gazes upon her reflecton; which is usually the key

always making her say the words over and over again in her mind

"that isn't me"
Me on my worst days.

I don't really have much to say about this, only I wrote it last week and just now found it.

I think this is all of us, though. We have those moments where we have to pretend we're all right for the sake of those around us.

When in reality, inside of us, it is the complete opposite.

Once again, this is really powerful, and utterly great. You're wonderful at poetry. And yes, I think most of us feel like this some point in time.

Yeah, we all do feel this way.
And if we don't, then we probably don't give a darn of other people.

...Don't we always think that at least fifty times a week/day?

Profound insight to the soul of one unsatisfied with self. You're very good.

Thank you very much--I try to basically put my heart into these types of writings, regardless of topic.

Thought provoking. The nature of duality and masks and hiding who we are and how we feel.

Duality and I are becoming fast frenemies. But thank you.
