Behind the façade you see,
Behind the smile so sweet,
Behind the eyes that twinkle,
Behind a laugh so contagious.
All that’s seen is so beautiful
Who would ever think what lies beneath,
Was a being so broken beyond repair.
Truth is what happens under a roof,
Behind closed doors,
In the corner,
Drowned by other noises,
In the dark.
What is done is not for others,
Not for the sympathy,
But for their own sake,
To keep their sanity.
Never is a second thought given
To the deception,
Not a single being to help the broken
Soul when needed…..
