Hidden in Plain Sight

By Karen Algor

Behind a smile lies a pain,
That runs deep within the vein.
A thousand hurts have gone by.

Behind a laugh hides tears unshed,
Tormenting thoughts run through my head.
Exhausted, I sit with heartfelt sigh.

Behind a joke lies a sorrow,
Weighing heavy, yet feeling hollow.
Emotions burst forth, I begin to cry.

The face you see is just a mask,
To stop the questions being asked.
The answers are so hard to come by.
