One Day

My smile hides my tears.
My laugh hides my screams.
It’s been this way for years.
Things aren’t as they seem.

I’m hurt all the time. 
I don’t want to cry for the way I feel inside.
Sits alone in the dark;
feel unheard and unseen.

I know it can be manageable; 
there are things that make life tolerable.
I just cannot find the thrill, 
I remember when dreams were imaginable, 
now it feels like I’m undoubtedly fallible.

I always seem happy.
With not a care in the world.
But you should know, sadly
Many things go untold.

Nobody really knows me.
They only know my cover.
Day by day;
I was slowly dying.
I couldn’t go on,
There was something missing..

This feels as if I’m trapped in a cocoon.
I would like to hatch, 
not be so detached.
I need to end this coldness,
before death leaves me soulless.

Until now I’m still searching
For the thing that’ll stop my crying,
But till then, I’ll keep on smiling,
Hoping one day I can smile,
Till then, I’ll be here…waiting.
