Poetry Day 5: Villanelle

I am alone
Even with friends nearby
My smile hides all
 
Pain echoes from within
As I try not to cry
I am alone
 
I keep holding it in
And no one tries to pry
My smile hides all
 
People don’t ask where I’ve been
When I get that blank look in my eyes
I am alone
 
When I start feeling happy again
Someone knocks me from my high
My smile hides all
 
Every day I grin
Glad no one knows my lie
I am alone
My smile hides all
