To Say It Doesn’t Bother Me

To say it doesn’t bother me
Is just a big plain lie
For when I sleep alone some nights
I wake up soaked by tears I cried

To say it doesn’t bother me
Helps me to cope
So I walk around smiling beautifully
And cover my emotions with a cloak

To say it doesn’t bother me
I wish that was the case
But instead I’ll fill my world with happiness
And from this heartache I’ll try to escape

“At some point amidst your tears, you have to decide if these tears are worth anything. Are you crying a river just to cry a river? Or are you crying a river so you can travel further along into your future?” –Monica Renata
