this side of my skin

You only see the side of my skin,

the glowing, the fair,

not the one deep within,

the fake one I wear.

You only see the side of my skin,

the laughing, the happy,

beyond that you don’t see,

the fear that I carry.

You only see the side of my skin,

a pretty smile and bright eyes,

you never seem to notice,

the tears I’ve withheld inside.

This side of my skin,

is covered with bruises and scars,

you never seem to care

to know the real me behind bars.

    the tears I’ve withheld inside.” I like this part the most
