Fake - Poem by Reginald Francois

I hid behind my smiles
I hide behind my lies
The happiness you see, stretches out for miles
The horror you don’t, like trash bring flies

I try to bring the JOY
My Cries, My screams ever so raw
Your sadness I destroy
My darkness eats my soul like the vengeance of a war

Too you I am perfect
In mirrors I see a wreck
A loving soul that always bring respect
A broken down shell, dead, like a slit neck

Your eyes see a shining star
Mine see a supernova
Brings smiles to a face like friends by a bar
Destruction like no other

Too you I am always happy
Loneliness with no escape
Some even wish to be me
Though they shall never know my fate

Though I look so glad
Loneliness I feel
My pride will never show sad
This is how I deal
