Master Of Disguise

Published by Family Friend Poems May 2016

She is skillful at deceiving.
No one even has a clue.
Her pretty words are weaving
Throughout the souls of me and you,
But in the late parts of the evening,
When her mind is way past due,
The skin of hers starts bleeding
And her act becomes askew.
Her eyes are actually pleading,
Saying her words aren't always true,
And her heart is really needing
Life to begin anew.
So if at night you see her sneaking,
Hold her till the morning's hue,
Because her heart is barely beating,
And she doesn't know if she'll make it through.

Hey,
I understand how you feel. It's really sad when people don't notice. Sometimes, I need a hug, but there's no one to give me the hug, so, I hug myself and tell myself it's going to be alright.
I've been learning to open up more, little by little. I have a lot of friends, but I only open up to a few, just 3 to be exact.
I really know how you feel. Believe me, "Its going to be okay, no matter how long it takes or how hard it is". Trust me and keep saying it yourself. Things will change. I love everyone here and I feel their sadness. I'm happy you're alive, when there's life there's hope. I'll put you all in my prayers. Always know you're not alone and there's someone out there praying for. God bless you. Before long, you'll start using your poetic talents to express lovely and happy feelings. I pray you have a good day or night. God bless you once more.
