The Mask



I'm building a mask
Don't touch my face
I'm contagious
Can't share my pain

The stare is suffocating
Everyone chips in
They try to relate
From places they've been

And I don't want your shoulder
I don't need your hand
Although I've fallen down
Someday I'll stand

Gazes all the same
The lot of you gawk
Tragedy is Tragic
But pity me not

I'll smile and seem fine
When I'm done with this mask
And they'll all carry on
A thing of the past
But I'll carry the pain
Won't end quite as fast

  A good friend of mine constantly says to me "Even the strong get a little weak sometimes" and lets not forget "you dont have to be strong ALL the time"
I hate asking for help, I hate to cry, I absolutely refuse to cry in anyone else's presence, and when I'm dying inside I smile like its going out of style. However anyone close to me knows this is the way I deal with pain, so I can't really say its a mask.

Tragedy is tragic indeed.. Take care

  there is always that phrase people will use..."i know how you feel"

but they seldom, if ever, do. each individual deals with pain differently...no one really knows exactly what we are feeling...and most of us cover up the pain pretty well...so we don't show even half of what we are really feeling deep down inside.

and the masks are all different...all of them.

  this is full of emotion..that feeling when you really yearn for something but what you have is not enough..wanting to stand for yourself and prove that your not weak despite your weaknesses..hiding yourself from the world but at the same time you also seem to want to be part of it
