If you can't be yourself with yourself then who can you be?


You smile because you're happy
I do it to hide that I'm sad
You laugh because something is funny
I do it to shake the feelings I have
You cry because you're sad
I do it because I'm mad
You yell when you're angry
I do it just because.
Your eyes remain sparkling and full of life
Mine continuously switch to hollow and cold
You go on as though I never existed
I feel the hole you left me,
gaping inside
You say that I bore you
But I say you entice me
Together I thought we were great
Separately I think we're walking contradictions.
