All a facade.
All the time.
But my thoughts deliver evil lies.
It's all a facade.
All the time.
But no one knows that I'm dying inside.
Never-ending pain that won't go away.
Not even the advil can take it away.
All a facade.
All the time.
I smile on the outside
To make things seem fine.
And the voices seem to grow louder
Each time.
All a facade.
All the time.
What if they saw how my heart is all dry.
This facade can't fade away.
I need this cover to be okay.
All a facade.
All the time.
I now confuse the nightmares
With my real life.
I'll always smile on the outside.
But the stabbing inside will never end.
Inside I'll bleed
And it will never mend.
But I'll hold this facade all the time.
Because I need this facade
To keep me alive.

I used to be like this. Much happier now that I got rid of the facade though......but I do understand the need for it.
And LinzAy made a good point about the repetition, it was just the right amount to remind the reader that your obsessed with this facade.
Brilliant poem.
