Blind Emotions

I try to write but my hand shakes
I smile but it is fake
My tears they stream down
I now wear a frown
My teeth they chatter
My heart is shattered
I start to shiver
My heart is now only a sliver
If they saw me sad they'd be happy
Knowing I was feeling crappy
Instead I show no feeling
I kept them reeling
I passed my task
Of always wearing a mask
As a person I've grown
They wonder how cuz I've got a heart of stone
I now show the emotions I feel
I finally can be real

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
