Don’t Look at Me

When I’m feeling weak and down,
Don’t look at me.
When I’m hurting
or screaming out
to keep from crying,
Don’t look at me.
Wait’til my mask is in place
and ignore its cracks.
I don’t want you to see me fall
or the times when I’m less than “me”.
I don’t want to shatter your image.
When you look at me,
I want you to see a pillar of strength,
an unbreakable wall.
I want you to see your hero.
So when I’m falling apart,
Don’t look at me.

Prompt: Don’t Look at Me
