Sorrow

Today is filled with sorrow

While also uncertain of tomorrow.

Still looking at the brighter side

Although the sorrow I cannot hide.

I Hide

I hide behind fake laughter

I hide behind half meant smiles

I hide my self esteem

Tuck it all away never knowing when it will be put to use.

I hide my scars

I hide my incompetencies

I hide everything that is wrong with me because society only wants perfection.

I hide sadness

I hide struggles

No one wants to deal with that.

I hide myself until I’m no more,

Hidden and wasting away.

Scraped

I scraped my knee again.

Mom is going to be angry.

She’s going to count to ten

So I’ll enter the house, ending my play abruptly.

.

My knee already hurts but she’ll still scold me.

I’ll get banished to my room like Rapunzel trapped in the tower.

She’ll ground me indefinitely

Though I don’t know what that means.

All I know is that it would be more than an hour.

.

So instead of telling mom that I scraped my knee

I’ll keep this a secret and just wash the wound completely.

Mom doesn’t need to know so I can continue playing.

That sounds like a good plan, that’s all I’m saying.

Tongue Tied

I want to tell you something

Tell you that your smile is captivating.

But how can I say this out loud?

I can’t handle this crowd.

I get nervous just being near you

I know that’s nothing new.

But I wish I didn’t stumble around you

I wish I knew what to do.

Still, everytime I try to convey what I feel inside

My words get lost, then I start to slur and get tongue tied.

So when you ask, I just smiled

Because I would rather be silent and hide

Than to try and speak and again get tongue tied.

Hidden 2

Others want to be seen

Be heard

Be noticed…

But others just want to stay hidden

Because they know what the cost is

His Story

He wrote his story in black and white

Told everyone of lies

Because he was afraid they’d know the truth

Convinced himself to walk away

Because he was afraid of my love.

And that’s how his story relates to mine

Hide

Cover my face

My body

My pride

I have nothing to show

And everything to hide.

My insecurities eat me up

I see all my negativities, magnified.

I try to be more body positive

But the hurt and teasing from the past

Have scarred me to the core

And so I hide

Shameful of how I look

I Die

I sing the blues

I drink til two

I laugh out loud

To cover the sadness with a fluffy cloud

I smile to cover the tears I cry

Because they don’t know, slowly inside I die

Two Face

The world dictates who you should be

Despite saying, “be yourself”

They invest in your insecurities

And magnify your inability

Uniqueness is “encouraged”

But too much of it, then your discouraged

They make you feel incapable

As they act to try and save you

Hide From Love

Love came but I hid from it

My time with it is done.

I tried love

And I savored it

It was tasteful

It was savory

Succulent and sweet

But he was the wrong sort.

It was enough for me to try it once

And so, I hide from it until the time comes once more.
