I am not,
What you see,
Although you may indeed,
Choose not to believe
I am a fabrication,
Built to make you smile,
Cleverly crafted,
So you don't know that I lie

I am not,
As strong as I seem,
And it is not laughter,
That in my eyes gleams
I am a tale of woe,
And one of sorrow,
So weak that I can't lead,
I can only follow

I am not as whole,
On the inside as out,
I am full of misery,
And so full of doubt
I am nothing more than illusion,
A master of it, I am,
I hope that you don't notice,
I don't expect you to understand

Pieces, big ones and small,
Force me to my knees,
Again and again,
Force me to crawl
Spidery cracks,
Lurk underneath my surface,
Making me feel incomplete,
Making me feel worthless

The silver sheen which covers,
Hides my secrets within,
Keeps from you my shame,
Keeps from you my sin
But, if you look closer,
And come nearer,
You will find I am nothing more,
Than a stained and broken mirror

This is who I used to be, and I know many of you feel this way, but you shouldn't, we are all worthy of happiness and love, we don't need to be broken.

But somehow, we are.

I love it not only because, you are a great writer but because, this is how I have been feeling all month and I do not like it. You wrote something I could relate to something I've been trying to say but, didn't know how too.. Thank You ..I love your work :D

fabrications of refractions.
shattered pieces of my soul in a unfixable puzzle.
my secret swept under the rug.
all that is me.

No reason for you to feel sorry.^^
In fact I find it pretty cool to find other people's work expressing my own feelings that good.^^

I feel like this, when I'm around certain people...

this reminds me of Mina Alexander's autobiography "Fault Lines"
