It's amazing how much you smile
when inside you're so damn hurt.
It's amazing how you claim to be in love
when inside you're just a flirt.
It's amazing how much you hear
when you say nothing at all.
It's amazing how you force a laugh
when in your eye glistens a tear.
It's amazing how short life really is,
yet there you are, ready to end it once and for all.
It's amazing how nobody realizes
until it's too late.
It's amazing how people think
you did it for attention.
It's amazing how this poem
is just a representation
of how you really feel
when you're trying so hard to convince the world you're okay.
