Empty SoulA Poem by Dissimilar
A mask obscures my soul
From the moment I wake up.
Showing emotions is a weakness;
But my composed image is a fallacy.
I fear rejection from a corrupt society,
Opinions matter more than my health.
And the thing about life is
That I just can't seem to live.
My tongue is burdened with gossip,
My mind is filled with sarcasm.
Hurtful comments will not escape me,
Painful memories choose not to depart,
This heart of mine is neither cruel nor loving;
I am a shell in which nothing can survive.
When does a cover become too much to handle?
When does a lie turn into your life?
I hide from love when I should embrace it,
Warmth and kindness make me shy away.
I am a shell in which nothing can survive,
I am a master of my personal hell.
