The Mask - Poem by Stacey Gibbs

You think you know me
but you don’t
I’m always happy
but inside, I’m falling apart
When I’m not around you
I’m in my room
Tears fall from my eyes
As the world becomes more unbearable
You ask if I am okay
I brush you off with a “Sure, why wouldn’t I be? ”
Can’t you see the pain
I guess you can’t
Knowing that I can make others believe I’m okay
doesn’t help my pain
When I cried
no one comforted me
Wracking sobs that are endless
Still no one hears my pain
There’s a void in me
one that’s killing me on the inside
I act like nothing is wrong with me
but there is something wrong with me
I feel like I’m nothing
hating myself for feeling this way
Please, see the real me
not the mask
