Count Dracula

My Mask - Poem by Count Dracula

I have always been sad and lonely,
There is nor was nobody to comfort me,
I put on a mask that always smiled;
Hid my feelings behind a lie.

It made me great many friends;
Wearing my mask, I was one of them.
But the truth deep inside, I still feel empty,
Always missing a part of me.

None would ever hear my cries at night
I had the perfect mask to hide the lies.
None would ever see the pain I feel
For my mask was a perfect smile.

But behind all that smiles there were tears
Behind all the comfort were the fears.
You think you have seen everything, but that was just my mask,
What you saw was nothing more than an act.....

Day by day,
I die, ever so slowly,
I can't go on this way,
Always there was something missing.....

I'm still searching
For something that will stop my crying.
For that one who will erase my fears,
For some person who will wipe my tears.

Until then I will keep my mask on, ever smiling.
I will hide behind my mask I wear....
Hope that one day I can actually smile,
Until then, I will wait.....
