No One Knows
Author: Tammy


No one knows my sadness
I keep it hid so well.
No one knows my tears
or this loneliness that dwells.

No one knows my fears
I keep them locked inside.
No one knows how many times
I have wanted to die.

No one knows my heartache
no one knows my pain.
No one knows this emptiness
that drives me so insane.

No one truly knows me
or these things I do hide,
because if they truly knew me
they could read it within my eyes.

You'd be surprised

how many people feel this way. We all have so much self doubt, so many fears. We all present an illusion, to some degree, to the world. Otherwise, we'd all be a lava flow of misery, at least some of the time.
