    Through My Eyes

    People think I'm perfectly fine through their eyes, but you see everything by looking in my eyes. My eyes show emotions, Emotions where its causing multiple distractions. I'll try to hide it from you, and somehow you get it out of me to. Through my eyes...you see everything.

    Obvious Emotions

    My issue is my feelings are never hidden. I can't hide my emotions if my life depended on it. Anger between my arched eye brows. Joy has its sparkle in my eyes. Pain obvious behind a crooked smile. Lies revealed from my scrunched up nose. I wish I could wear mask on days I want...

    Goes For All

    I think we all have this problem at times. Sometimes it's a good thing and then there are those times when  you are at work and blinking like crazy trying to fight back the tears. It can help and it can hurt I guess.

    A Ticking Time Bomb

    I always ended up as a ticking time bomb, ready to explode with a wrong move when I bottled up my emotions. Many say that Im paranoid and headstrong, that's why I can't handle things well. But I tried give up hiding my emotions, but I couldn't, I tried to be strong all the time...

    Broken Bottle

    Sometimes I can't hide my emotions. I know I'm supposed to bottle things up. That's what guys do, right? But also just from experience, showing emotion seems to make things worse, make other people angry and uncomfortable with me. But sometimes I just get stuff it down inside me...

    Open Book

    I just find them hard to hide. If I get a bad call at work, everyone around me is gonna know about it. If I have a crush on someone, it eventually becomes painfully obvious -- if not to the person I like, then to everyone else in that environment. I'm basically an open book...

    In fact, most of the time i can't. I try so hard though. Sometimes I get so angry, or get so sad, and I don't know how to deal with those feelings. So either I lash out verbally or get offline or walk away from you without saying a word. I don't know how to deal with my feelings...

    When It All Gets Too Much.

    I'm really good at hiding my emotions and I mean really good. I can put on a smile and you would never have known how I really feel. Even some of my very close friends don't even know. It's only because I've been like this, since the day I met them. They basically only see...
