A Broken Poet

I pass through life
like a shadow-


so no one hears my tears
but no one gives me a second thought.


I try to be invisible
but at the same time
hoping someone will see through
the disguise.


This mask of words
hides the truth;
I'm broken beneath
this pomp and circumstance.


If only someone...
could read between the lines,
make sense of my madness.
