Shadow of denial
Broken inside nobody knows for I hide behind this smile   Secrets spilling from tortured dreams  is my exit from denial   Then there is the darkness That covers me whole   Like a wicked blackness  to take away my soul   All my anger All my tears Welled up deep inside     Left alone With all my fears I tried once to hide   Hatred burns Within my vein the needle takes its toll   Behind my smile I slip back insane the drugs are in control   Not a single memory There is nothing left to feel   Behind my wall of silence is my shadow made of steel                        
Author's Notes:
The shadow of denial can be fatal.

Hiding behind the shadow of denial surely can be fatal. Sooner or later we all have to face our to do it sooner than later.

When the pain inside is more than the heart and soul can stand, there has to be an outlet or a catharsis of some sort. Many take the "needle" or "pill" or "alcohol" escape, as it's all that can work to ease the pain.  Denial is what we all do because if it's not a reality, we don't have to deal with it.

Great write, Fletch...

my smile is fake
deep downs whats real
look me in the eye
to know how i feel
but you must make a promise
one that you must keep
for my happiness and joy
is only skin deep
looking further
is a painful cost
because behind my smile
all emotion is lost

great write
I loved this poem

Oh, I really don't know what to say as I know some of the feelings you have penned. This is very good but so sad. It's so easy to read and flows but it's made me think. Thankyou for sharing.

Take care
