My Illusion

by *~Emma~*   Nov 21, 2005


The amount of time I've spent
Living life this way
Denying how i feel
Hiding from the day

I'm smiling on the outside
Pretending nothings wrong
I'm lying to myself
But it's gone on far too long

Living under a mask
Showing laughter and light
Crying on the inside
I know this can't be right

Who am i to share this with
When there's no-one left to care
Where am i to turn now
When i feel so very bare

Where there's a cut upon my skin
The blood begins to seep
A sharp edge engraves a path
I watch it slice so deep

Another scar will appear
Where once my skin felt new
I form a portrait of my pain
On the day's I'm feeling blue

Scarlet streams are flowing
Painting my life a conclusion
I can't believe the pain has gone
Creating My Illusion

    An excellent stanza. Your description in this poem was simply Amazing, and I have no Idea how it could get a 4.9 instead of a 5.0. Excellent J

    Hey good poem. I liked the rhyming scheme good job. I'm sorry I don't know what too say and that I have such a bad comment, but this poem is excellent in every way. It has perfect rhymes, size, flow, format, and length.

    Wow deep. I like it. So parts in there reminds me of me. (does that sound right?) The part when it says I'm smiling on the outside, Pretending nothings wrong, I'm lying to myself, But it's gone on far too long. 5/5.
