Mask the pain

I've masked the pain for so long now,
No one sees through my act,
That's all it is,
It's a one man show,
And I'm the best actress you could possibly find,
I let the tale unfold and I play the part with humour,
But the story everyone sees is make believe,
It's what I choose for them to see,
You must understand,
That the story is all I have left to give,
If it was not for that one tiny last grace,
I would not be this person I seem to be,
I would be a recluse, a wreckage,
I wouldn't be the Beauty,
I'd be the Beast,
I would live my mistakes,
I would be my mistakes,
I would live as a monster,
Not a person,
It's easier to make you believe,
Than you think it is,
It's easier to make you believe,
Then you don't have to see what you won't want to,
I bow out gracefully,
From my day pretending,
And lay thinking of all the things I lied about,
All the things I didn't say,
All the things I didn't do,
All the things I didn't think,
For once, my mask slips,
But no one's there to see it,
This show hasn't finished, though,
This performance is for ever,
And this actress never stops acting...

poet James Whitcomb Riley

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
