I Should

I should have thicker skin
Like a duck’s back or an otter’s. 
I'm colorful in my veneer of strength
No one knows me, truly
They don’t.
I dance on stage as the flickering lights
Fade in the distance
 I falter
From one crazy step to another
Feeling like a drunken fool, 
a clown
Dressed for a Venetian Masquerade
A huge smile on my painted face
And death eyes set deep within
I think I fit in ~

I don’t.
