Behind These Eyes

I'm a fraud;
I'm a liar.


Every smile is forged.
Every laugh is deception.


Behind these eyes
[if you dared to look],
you would see a broken girl.


You would see
the sadness in my pores
just begging to pour out.


You would know
that the one I lie to most
is the one in the mirror.
