Outside Looking In - Poem by Tricia Lemaster
The tears you cry,
You hide them with a mask of
On the outside you're tough,
On the inside you're weak.
The memories are slowly leaving,
You still hear him talking, screaming,
in your head.
You try to be tough
You wait for everyone to leave
When the lights go out,
Your mask of darkness comes
Shielding you from people who might
Take the mask down.
You don't need to hide
No-more need for a mask
He's slowly leaving
Forget the man,
You don't need to remember his voice
The bullets come out
Aiming for him
