Jagged Edges

By ApolloSun, Evanston, IL

Have you ever felt alone in the group?
Ever convinced yourself
'Hey, life is fine!
Why wouldn't it be?'
Waking up sobbing
For reasons you're not sure of.
Although you feel like you should know.
'Why am I such a stranger to myself?'
On the outside looking in.
Masking all the feelings
They don't want to see;
Picture perfect, see?
Are you happy?
I hope you are,
When I can't be.
And in all the shades of grey,
I match up each emotion.
My 'happy' grey today
And the next day and the next.
Until I've shaded in the lines,
But you can never really hide
