Hiding myself

Hiding myself

A Poem by tanaya


I hide myself

I hide my heart

I hide my emotion

I hide my face


I do all this so you don’t see me

I do all this so I don’t loose control

I do all this so you cant see what I am really feeling


I hide the tears

I hide the anger

I hide the embarrassment

I hide all of me


Everyone else

All around me

Knows nothing


Some guess

Some I tell

But not everyone

Not you


My shield

My invincibility

Is all in me,

Hiding myself


I am the best at it


No one can find me


Under all these layers

Under all this protection

Under all the numbness

I am there


I hide my face

I hide my heart

I hide my emotion

I hide myself

Easy to hide emotion and desire. Can be safer then to show the world how you really feel. I like the pace of the poem and the ending. A very good poem.

and yet you "Beg" to be found... strange dichotomy... but not limited to Oz...or any one place.
