Hiding

I go through my day
With my back straight
I smile and I laugh
When I'm supposed to 
I'll act strong and steady
This facade always ready
Fire in my eyes
A purposeful stride
Making sure you don't see
What's going on underneath
The moments I can't breathe
And when my heart is racing
I bet I look calm, confident even
Oh but if only you knew what I was thinking
Or how I try to slow my heartbeat
So I can keep the blush from my cheeks
I'm sorry for when I avoid your eyes
And run away at your sight
Just trying my best at hiding 
I'm more afraid of you than you are of me
