Smiles are masks

That you hide behind

When there are people

Crushing you in their judgment

Expecting you to radiate with happiness

But at night

When you are alone

Drowning in your own thoughts

The mask comes off

And red hot emotion pours

Down your cheeks

But still

You have to sew your sobs

Into the sheets

Because apartment buildings

Aren’t soundproof

And you can’t let others know

Of the daggers

In your mind

That cause this


Of your soul

And you disguise the red eyes

With mascara

And you disguise the scars

With concealer

Then you walk into the throng

Of sweating, misshapen


Who call you a

Name that is not your own

For wearing too much makeup

Or too little clothing

Because you didn’t have to cover up

The marks of pain

Since they are already hidden


The mascara

And the concealer

And the smiles.
