    This mask I wear,
    she serves me well,
    she hides my pain,
    so they can't tell.

    They see her smile,
    never my tears,
    she shows no sorrow,
    she fights all my fears.

    They believe she is me,
    if only they knew,
    that she is my mask,
    my saviour too.

    My scars she hides,
    behind laughter and lies,
    she say's she is fine,
    but slowly she dies.


    what do u think!?

    Blade i wrote this just under two years ago when my wife took her own life.

    To Vivienne (poem)

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    lost in thoughts that werent her own
    caused my wife to leave our home
    myself two kids and sixteen years
    ended that day immersed in tears

    a beautiful woman so proud and strong
    fought for her kids from the the day they were born
    she loved me too and our little home
    and now she has left us all alone

    it wasnt her fault its not what she would do
    her love was unquestionable for us thats true
    but the hole thats left is gaping and wide
    and my heart is heavy deep inside

    i hope she is out there watching over us
    helping to guide us from above
    but not to have her here with me
    is eating me up im sure you can see

    i had planned to be with her till the day i died
    many years from now and by her side
    but thats been taken out of my hands
    as we were planning to renew our wedding bands

    i dont know where i go from here
    but i know each day i shed a tear
    for my true love who has gone away
    and wont lie with me another day

    her engaging smile and soft spoken voice
    now gone from our home replaced by a void
    maybe someday we will meet again
    in another life or another plain

    so goodbye dear wife mother and friend
    i wish i could have helped you at the end
    to vivienne whom i loved through and through
    from paul ,stephanie and wee paul aidan too.
