Under My Skin
  

i hide my life

behind each and every lie

killing all questions asked

covering them with masks

im shallow but deep

why dont you get me?

no one seems to

understand what i go through

its not so much traumatic

as it is self inflicted

this is my addiction

i lie to scare you all away

i dont want to feel the pain

but now im more than lost

was the trouble worth the cost?

now im more than addicted

to this feeling self inflicted

its what angels predicted

i was falling from the start

the way i live with a broken heart

i dont want anyone under my skin

i lie to keep you from breaking in

no one is allowed to know me

no one is allowed to look inside

might as well bury me alive

i wont let anyone under my skin

i lie to keep you from breaking in

now that im more than addicted

to this feeling self inflicted

its become a part of who i am

now no one can break in

you cant get under my skin...

Nicely said. Spoken from a soul that is crying.

Your descriptive words draw me in to the desperation.

This is a good poem, every word has so much meaning....I dont know if you are going through this pain right now, but if so.....REMEMBER, Everything Happens For A Reason, and sometimes the reasons we don't understand, just as everyone has a purpose in life, and some don't know their purpose, but it they will find! I find your poetry in a type of releasing emoting and venting. This to, is the reason I write poetry, I find it very relaxing! But this poem is great....GOOD JOB!
