Maddie 'Rae' Berry Poems
Masks I'Ve Hidden Behind
Don't be fooled by how I act,
don't be fooled by the posterior I show.
For I have thousands of masks
though none of them are me.
I give the impression that I’m secure, upbeat
But inside I am really insecure.
Confidence is my name and coolness is my claim
I’m the one that’s in command but don't believe my lies
Beneath me dwells who I really am,
alone in darkness and fear.
I hide this from everybody because I don't want them to know
That I instantly freeze at the thought of my weakness being exposed.
So this is why I ...
I Will Never Show
I love him more and more each day for he is perfect in every way.
Though I’ll never show my feelings on public display,
for I don't know what I would say would he walk away?
Or say he feels the same way?
Each day, I try to run away and forget my harboured feelings for him.
For he is my weakness, that lies within me oh.
If only he could see,
he is my obsession, my world but I could never tell him so.
