The Disguise

The Disguise

A Poem by Solar Redemption

She dreams of broken thoughts

Images dance before her eyes

She's awaken by self-indulgence

Dying inside, she takes a deep breath

With tears streaming down her cheeks

She gently brushes them away

With mascara smeared down her face


She doesn't have enough energy left in her to care

-Care about what may happen

But, somehow she manages to fool everyone

So, she smiles with all she has left

Although, it's a crooked smile at that

But, at least she tries to get by


Not knowing what will happen next

Each day brings more problems and stress

And each night as she lays down-

She finds another reason to regret herself

Her fears become Reality

There is nowhere for her to escape

Nothing to keep her from feeling numb

No useless drug to fight the pain away


As she looks in the mirror-

She sees a mistake

Just another lost soul fighting to live

She's giving up so easily

But, there's nothing left for her to give


Music is her only defense

Her only way out of Reality

But, when the music stops-

Her life falls back into its place


But, lying in her room

She's confused and afraid

Crouching down in a corner

With her body squished up against the wall


She's lost and lonely, hiding in the dark

So her tears will never be seen

-As a new day approaches

Her disguise becomes whole again-

The night struggle can become less painful in the morning.

the mistake in the mirror is the "mistake of the mirror" and a "crooked smile" is ok... a new day approaches. I think she's beautiful. Thank you

As i have said in many of your other writings, this also has a lot of emotion and feeling. I put myself in the girls place because i have been her once or twice and i can remember the pain and hurt that this girl feels. Great job hun!
