Hiding - Poem by Rava Yamizaki
Do you really think that I'm happy?
Can you not tell that I'm feeling pain?
I'm hiding what I really feel
Can you not see the stress that I'm going through?
Of course you can't
I might seem happy
But I'm actually not
I do not consider laughing being happy
When I laugh, a smile might appear on my face
But when I'm done laughing the smile quickly fades
I wear emotional masks
That way no one will worry about me
They won't be asking me why I'm in pain
They will not worry
That is what i want
If you can tell that I am wearing an emotional mask
Then tell me how you found out
But I highly doubt that you'll see past that mask
I highly doubt that you'll see that I'm in pain
Becuz I am wearing an emotional mask
When it comes to hiding what I truly feel
I am good at it
And no one will ever know
The thought will never cross their damned mind
They can't see that I'm in pain
I wonder if anyone can see that I'm hiding my true feelings
I wonder if anyone can see that I'm hiding the pain that I'm in
Can you not see that I'm going through a lot of stress?
Can you not see that it's tearing me apart?
This stress is too much for me
It's more than I can handle
Usually I can handle stress
But recently it has become too much for me
It's almost enough to make me kill myself
That way I don't have to deal with it anymore
I need to keep my mind occupied with something else
I'm hiding my pain
So how could you possibly know that I'm in pain?
You can't see that I'm in pain
Because I'm good at hiding my pain
Because I don't want anyone to worry about me
That is why I hide my pain
And I don't want anyone to worry about me
Because it'll probly just get on my nerves.....
