I have been writing so much recently, I thought I would start putting them all in one collection.
This is me- my thoughts, my feelings, who I am...written in words
I look in the mirror and all I see
Is the reflection of a girl that's not me.
A painted mask, a smile so bright
hair that's pretty and perfect and light.
And to the outside world it seems,
This is the girl from everyone's dreams.
But her eyes tell a different tale,
they show the hidden and the frail
But no one seems to look that close
Or maybe they would rather not know
That underneath the perfect face
The girl lives in a darker place.
In the mirror, she looks back at me
And I already know what she will see
A frozen mask, no happy smile
I gave up trying: its been a while
For the world sees what it wants to believe:
They see the girl in the mirror, but they don't see me.
