"It's supposed to be hard. If it wasn't hard everyone would do it. The hard, is what makes it great."~ A League of Their Own

I can see it when I look at you.

Your smile and your laugh.
They’re infexious and beautiful, but not real.
You’ve fooled everyone else, but not me.
You don’t know that I can see it, but I can.
Right through your jokes, your singing, your stories.
I can see the twisted darkness in your face when you shift your eyes to the ground.
And the depression in the way you brush your hand against your face.
I can see it.
And I can’t explain why I’m the only one who can see it.
But I can’t help but feel like I’m supposed to.

This piece was made for someone in particular, and I know that they will probably never see it, but I couldn't help it.
