All my sadness fully veiled,
None see through the dark of night.
In my living I have failed.
None can see my endless plight.

Ignore my mask, it isn't true.
Watch the actions that I do.
My emotions might seep through.
Let my writings speak to you.

All alone in dark and cold.
Many shadows cross my face.
Weep for wound the new and old.
The tears are gone without trace.

I've given you a glance inside of me
The many things that I hold dear.
It's imperative that you see,
It's what I've hidden that I fear.
