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 Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
