The girl behind the mask

The girl behind the mask doesn't understand 
that beauty is in the eye of the beholder
The girl behind the mask 
keeps a smile on her face
Even though most days she hates herself
The demons inside of her keep her from being herself
She's depressed
and she knows it
she's blind to how happy 
how genuinely happy
she makes everyone else
But how come she can never make herself happy
the girl behind the mask
loses a little of herself each day
yet no one cares

    So delicately constructed and emotional!! :D
    I love those last three lines and find them easy to relate to. :DD
    Fantastic job with so beautifully capturing the feeling of loneliness in this!
    If you know somebody who feels lonely or like nobody cares, I know somebody who will be a friend. :)
