Beneath The Porcelain Facade - Poem by eddie eidde

She hides beneath the smile of a procelain mask
under the utopic facade of happiness
hoping no one will notice she hurts underneath
no one will notice the scars for they are hidden under wraps
no one will notice the tears for they are wiped away
no one will notice her for she is silent
and forever will be.
Her mask will never crack, it is perpetually stuck
she will never give up her act for she can't
who would believe her
Just know that with each laugh, smile, joke
her true self is lost beneath the porcelain mask.
