books_and_rooks (United States of America) published:
Laughter erupts across the room,
The joy of companionship in full bloom
They chatter, loving memories they rejoice
Of all the times they spent together, embracing one another's voice
Sun-bright smiles, star-shining eyes-
All to cover the obvious lies.
To whom, you may ask?
Who is the one able to peer behind the candied mask?
Why, it is only I;
The girl, quiet and oh-so shy,
Presence thin as a knife,
Secrets blatant to her, the invisible life.
