The Impostor


05 May, 2015 05:50 PM
A smile hides my tears 
A joke masks my sadness
I've banished, locked away my pain deep in my soul's dungeon 
And I've thrown away the key
So you can never see
Me cry. 

I've tucked my melancholy beneath
A roughly designed mask decorated with
Pretend Jokes
Fake Smiles
Phony Laughter
Happy Lies. 

You say you know everything about me but in truth
You know nothing at all. 

I am an impostor.
