  • All my smiles are fakes and forgeries

    all my talk of bravery and ok ness is lies

    the storm of fear that rages inside of me makes the one outside just a tiny water droplet.

    I lie,this road I can not walk alone

    I lie,this burden I cannot carry alone

    The happy face is to cause you no worry

    where you are your, hands are tied as are mine from where I am

    We have still yet to find a way to cross the border to live to love to laugh to share to cry to hold away the fear.

    My smiles are fading melting away with the salty water of tears.I have been strong for so long but I can not hold this pain all alone,I can admit that now.

    How will you ever pick up all the shards of me,and will you even want to by the time you could have.
