Tormented Soul


On the outside is a smile

But on the inside, a frown

You do not know the real me

Choose only to see the clown

Does the darker side of me

Make you uncomfortable?

Do you squirm? Do you twitch?

Am I that insufferable?

Beauty is only skin deep

Yet all you see is the shell

Would it make any difference

To know my mind lives in hell?

Do I sometimes cross your thoughts

When you go about your day?

Do you ever think of me?

Do you know the price I pay?

Torment scratches at my door

But with a smile, I still feign

Pick myself up, brush it off

Though still live and breathe the pain

It’s corroded my frail heart

Made me who I am today

Broken rose-coloured glasses

The world has left me this way

You can take everything I have

I don’t need it anymore

Am due to meet the devil

Then I will settle the score
