The Mask

DownUp 0

Tears I cry
Pain I feel
I don’t want to die
But how do I deal

I live a lie
I hide my pain
Without this mask
Tears fall like rain

I try to cope
And keep on going
But I lose hope
And my heart needs sewing

I want to forget
God knows I try
But I just can’t
So I live this lie

I wear this mask
Every day
So that he won’t see
That I’m not ok

When it falls off
Then he sees
Underneath this mask
And looks at the real me

That’s when he knows
That I’m in pain
And that he’s the cause
Of all this rain

But I have to try
To keep moving on
He says it’s for the best
But now he’s gone

So on goes this mask
And on goes the pain
I know I’ll always live
In the pouring rain.
