She Hides So Well

Across the room
they seem to see
A smiling girl
who looks like me.

With two huge dimples
on each cheek
She laughs and talks,
and always speaks.

She's the girl they think
would have it all.
But inside her is
where tears fall.

Inside her mask
is where I dwell
This broken girl
she hides so well.

I try to wipe
her tears away
But they fall more
each coming day

She tries to laugh
when her heart breaks
But hurts with every
smile she fakes.

And inside her
is where I dwell
This hidden girl
i hide so well.

The girl that no one ever sees,
Behind a mask that looks like me.
