"There would be no shadows if the sun were not shining"


Happy mask,

Smiling lie,

I mean no harm,

 

Never let the curtain drop,

The music falter,

The magic trick end,

 

They like you happy,

Full of sunshine,

Full of empty words,

 

So bleed on the inside,

Silently scream,

Cry dry tears,

 

And if you die,

Who will mourn you,

When they have your happy shell.


The author's comments:

This is a tribute how, very, very many women in the past century had to fake a smile. It's also a warning to people who still hide their pain now. Don't hide, otherwise you might lose a little of yourself. Stay safe and live your life how you want! 

 

Luv yall!

"I'd rather be a forest than a street.
If I only could, I surely would.
I'd rather feel the earth beneath my feet."

Oh yes...I'm glad to hear someone's honest about the 1950s instead of praising that decade's superficial innocence.

"It Will Be Good." (complicated semi-spiritual emotional story.)
And the words I say most often: "Where was I?"
"I just switched 50 things to anonymus and it doesnt even make a diff- why was i writing this again? where was i? hm.... oh well."

No one told us, that love is a garden,
We just simply started believing that spring is beautiful

WOW! Loved this

When people first meet me, they think I'm really shy, but by the time they get to know me they wonder how the illusion of shyness ever came around!

This is amazing, well done. (I can't believe I am the first to comment, it's great!) I hope you can write more things on here soon. 😄
