Masks

Masks

A Poem by cityhomeless

I stuff my feeling in a hole.
Where I bury my heart and soul.
And layer the cover with wood and nails.
Then put on a mask that never fails.
I listen, watch and shut my mouth.
Make sure I shove my tears down south. 
I'll never let them break down the wall. 
That hides me, covers me; safe thick and tall.
I smile and laugh, oh so genuinely.
But can't find the courage to set free the desires inside of me.
But sometimes when through the cracks I fall.
Someone special breaks down that wall.
But I will never let you see. 
The truth I let them see in me.
