Masqueraded Smiles


Yes its sinking me in
Taken up all I had to offer
What is left of me?
I question myself,
I look in the mirror
It stares right back at me
Blank stare!

Who am I?
I question myself again,
All I see is a weak, pathetic soul
Smothered in the smoke of despair,
Staring right back at me
Blank stare!
*sigh*

Do you see what you've done?
The eyes don't smile no more!
Do you see your cynical self in me?
I don't know myself no more!
The depth of my inner anguish?
Oh them masqueraded smiles,
Might have covered them all!

I bet your preeminent self is content
Seeing all the shifts you made
You smile, I smile; You frown, I frown
Who cares what's beneath the masquerade?
