The Mask I Wear - Poem by Rene' Bennett

Sadness overwhelms me
as at night
I weep.
You cannot see
my pain inside
you never even tried.
I know what
you wish to see
as you say
you're proud of me.
This gentle smile
on my face
belongs to me
with all her grace.
It took sometime
to place her there
so, daily she is
what I wear.
Just for you
she'll smile away
hoping she will
make your day
as you pretend
it's all real
never knowing
how I feel.
And when you go
to sleep at night
assure yourself
I am all right.
Your security blanket
hides so well
that I'm still
in this

    Deep subject...Probally one of the best poems I have read in a good while...Words have a drawn feeling as being pulled by a rope without control.. (Report)Reply

    what a sad poem, Rene' - I wish I could think of something clever to cheer you up,
    but it's a damn fine write all the same.
