Beneath the smiles

I cry with no tears;
I scream with no sound.
Maybe there are tears and sound,
But you don't seem to notice.
It's like there's a wall between us
But I can see you.
Clearly.
I want you to listen while I speak
Without judging me;
But you only hear what you want.
So I bottle up my emotions
And pretend everything's alright.
If only you could see
That the real me is hidden
Beneath the smiles.
