I am the un-romanceable.
I am the character you rarely see.
I stay on the sidelines joking.
I listen, to stories unending.
Their lives laid in front of me.
They confide in me, the person that nobody sees.
For seeing a false me is as good as not seeing.
I am the confidence ascender.
The person defender.
I listen, I support.
But rarely is support given to me.
I am the character nobody sees.
I joke, rarely am I serious.
I hide my face behind a shield.
I deflect questions with sarcastic humor.
I hide behind a shield of false levity.
To be serious would be to show truth.
I can't show them me.
Who I am is a secret.
The person nobody truly sees.
Those who claim to know me never do.
They fall for lies.
They don't want the truth.
I am the person that hides so nobody sees.
I am the character that everyone assumes is indestructible.
I must be a bulwark for those who surround me.
For if they suffer injury twas I that inflicted.
I, who shatter like glass at the most fragile of glances.
Must protect those around me.
I smile, for I cannot be glass.
I must be unbreakable.
For that is the label I have received.
I cannot cry.
For I am the unbreakable.
The un-romanceable queen.
For if I am not unbreakable I am weak.
If I don't lie they criticize.
If I don't laugh then others cry.
Who I am is created.
Not for me,
But for those that surround me.
I am the one that nobody sees.
The unbreakable, the un-romanceable.
