Incognito

She disguises herself
Hides behind fake smiles
Moves in the dark
Stifles screams, silent
A heavy burden she carries
A secret
But she will never tell

She suffers alone
Away from loved ones
Denies help
For the sake of them
But she can only go so far
On her own
Before fatigue
Ensnares her body

But no one would ever notice
Or even detect
The sadness that envelops her
The pain, guilt, regret
That tortures her heart

Behind forced smiles,
And joyful eyes
She disguises herself
To fool the world

We all hide in our own ways... And show ourselves to those we will.
