There's silence.
I see their mouths moving an their Hands moving, but I hear nothing.
I feel my mouth moving, but I hear
Nothing.
Clouds of wonder cloud my mind and
My train of thought as I process
What I just heard.
I just heard the bone crushing Sound of my heart breaking.
My vision becomes cloudy as Everything looks as if it is a Dream-like quality.
I feel my face becoming contorted
With the pain I conceal.
I try to hold my tears back using
My eyelids as a barrier between my
Mind and my reality.
Realizing that I am standing here
With no sound, no pain, no fear, And no tears, I now know what it Feels like to be heartless.
Emotions lead to decisions that can
Either make or break you.
Make your decisions
Don't let them make you
There's noie.
I hear what they say and as if on
Cue I do what they expect me to do.
I laugh.
Laughing as I am crying on the Inside.
Laughing like everything is okay.
