The Mask

Because we all have secrets…..Hidden in the darkest shadows of our minds

With tear-filled eyes and a counterfeit smile,
I lied through my teeth,
I told you I agreed with you,
That we both needed time to breathe,
It was only you that needed it,
I was breathing just fine,
But deep down I knew it was what you really wanted,
You knew it too,
