I put on a mask to hide my face.
I make sure that it leaves no trace.
I want to open up myself and share,
But if I do will you still be there?
My thoughts are more twisted than you know.
My self-esteem's extremely low.
Sometimes I have so much fear.
It's so tough to keep my head clear.
I want to kill myself all the time,
But I just tell you that I'm fine.
Sometimes I want to kill others.
That's something you can never discover.
And so I keep it hidden inside.
I don't know if it's fear or pride.
This will change your image of me.
You'll run away from what you see.
You'll never look at me the same.
I don't want to play this game.
So I'll keep myself locked away.
It doesn't matter what I want to say.
Keeping up my high wall,
Is the closest to not being this at all.

This is so relatable.
One of my greatest wishes is to go all out, and hold nothing back. To act on my more primal instincts, and wreak hell. :evillaugh:
...But I know that if I did do that, I would be labeled a "threat to society" and then probably get locked up somewhere. :(
Oh well. I can always dream, right? ^_^;;

This reminds me of this song called hungry for a holiday and it talks about hiding yourself everyday. Conor closes it out when he sings "Well if the costume fits keep wearing it, but no Halloween could quite account for this, I guess your getting into character, or just be yourself if that would help, or sink completely into someone else, you dreamt of mountains but sometimes a hole is more comfortable"

We all hide behind a mask. We perform different roles depending on who we are with. I think we are a mix of personalities. We hid our true self because we don't want to be hurt. I hope you find someone you can trust and be open with. Nicely done.

Thank you. I was very lucky to find someone that I could be completely open with and was accepted. He encourages me to write poems and convinced me to put them on here. I wouldn't have been able to share my poems here if it weren't for him. I don't know how I coped before. This is for everyone else I know, but I think this is mainly to my ex who I was with for years and am still very good friends with. With how close we are and were, I was never able to be truly honest to him.
