Deception

My clothes are a costume
my makeup a mask
my bracelets bandages
covering imaginary scars.
Since I'm too afraid to feel something
I feel everything
I carry all the pain of the world on my back.
I never look like I've been crying.
So in answer to your question
no, I'm not bipolar
just really good at lying to myself. 

The End
