Hiding the Pain Behind a Face

Hiding the pain behind a face,
Sparing others, inflicting more upon oneself.

Throwing oneself under a sea of emotion, to the point of drowning,
Keeping the pain from others.

Hurting oneself, sparing others.

No one will understand.
No one can understand.

Being in a hurricane of emotions, others look in oblivious.

Oblivious? Because of the veneer of the face.
The veneer of happiness and kindness.

A front to hide the turmoil within.

Taking more pain upon oneself, to spare the pain on others.
