Poem Commentary

Some days are very hard to get through. I don't know what the future holds and I am scared.

Inside

When does the pain end
Do I have to be mean again
Nobody knows what lies behind the mask I wear
So much anger and hurt is under there

People see what they are allowed to see
My skin covers dangerous thoughts and needs
I am screaming inside almost all the time
She has know Idea what she has helped me become

I did not plan for the evil to settle in her heart
Even though I saw that something was going wrong
It is hard to believe the one you loved
Would turn out to be your worst

I am a shell of a man at this time
Watching every word and action of mine
Need to rebuild my trust and desires
But for now I will pretend I am solid

Iv'e felt this so many times in my heart, after a while it becomes easier to wear a mask and pretend then actually run the risk of letting someone in with the knowledge that something could go wrong. Great writing.

(only one edit second stanza word know should be no ) =) I like the raw emotion in this pen. It covers fears many of us have... the self-doubts that come when our world is unstable. A very honest pen

The true philosopher and the true poet are one, and a beauty, which is truth, and a truth, which is beauty, is the aim of both.

Ralph Waldo Emerson, American Poet (1803-1882)
