The Real Me

Poem By Jordan Jacobs

Hidden inside of me is
A little boy curled in a ball
Crying
Hiding it behind a laugh

Hidden inside of me is
A little boy who blames himself for
Everything
Hiding it behind a smile

Life hidden in the shadows, living in isolation
Afraid to come out of the shadows
The shadows of his heart
Clings to the darkness of reality
The boy screams form within
But the shadows hid it behind a smile
The boy gives in
And silently weeps
He wonders……
“How could they be so blind
as to think that smile was real? ”
“Why cant the see
the real me? ”
Hidden inside of me is a boy
Wishing to be set free

Comments about The Real Me

Other than the fact that I'm a female, I can relate to this... That feeling of despair on the inside, the mask of happiness on the outside... I know the feeling all too well, and you have captured it here. Warmest Regards, Eliza Stine

Behind A Smile

Alone I cry, hiding it behind a laugh
Alone I remorse, hiding it behind a smile

My loneliness so deep it cuts into my soul

Mourning Mist

The shadow emerging from the morning mist
Raises inside of me a storm
Of anger and sadness
That swirls in me like a tornado

Light...Dark

The light fades to darkness
As I recede into the shadows

There to live. There to die

My Life

My life the Storm
The harsh cold
The unforgiving wind
The thunder that wakes me at night

Sadness

The light fades to darkness
As I recede into the shadows

I sit there remembering…….
