My Other Self

I'm watching myself interact,
Playing the fool,
Making the jokes,
Laughing out loud,
Talking the talk.
I'm seeing the lies I portray,
Knowing the pretense,
Playing the game,
Feeling the hypocrisy,
Watching the show.
I'm hoping I can't be seen,
The real me,
The fear I have,
The sadness I know,
The battle I contend with,
The scars I hide,
The pain I feel,
The truth I can't tell.
