See Behind My Mask - Poem by Nasteha Mahmud

I want you to look into my eyes
And see
The struggle behind my smile
The tears behind my laughter
The fear behind my bravery
The confusion behind my beautiful face

I want you to look into my soul
And see
That pure and innocent love
That sweet and friendly spirit
That fragile heart
That longing and desire
To be understood, loved and cared for

I want you to hold my hands
When things are going wrong
And tell me that things will be fine
Maybe not soon but eventually
You don’t have to be my happiness
Just be my support
You don’t have to live for me
Just live with me
Be there for me as a friend.
