The Mask

by justafan

She hides her true self
Behind a mask of smiles
Her soul tortured ...daily

Crying inside for what
Could have been
Should have been

It was all a lie
He was a lie

Where love should have been sacred
He used it as a punch line

Holding it just out of reach

Her heart ...shattered
Her peace ...stolen
Her mask ... in place
