Broken Masks

Author:

Lee is an aspiring writer who makes poems in his free time. Words and lines give him comfort in trying times.

Would the world be ready

To see the real me

The sad, ugly, broken me


Putting on a show

That I am strong

Sleeping in tear-stained pillows.


Blasting music to mask

The deafening silence

Of loneliness.


Detached and exhausted

Couldn't count how many

'I'm fine's I've said.


No one knows

The smiles and laughs

A veil to the void.


Is there anyone strong enough

To break the walls

And see what's under my mask.
