What Can I do

In gym, I hear
"I know who Jake likes"
"Oh, really? Who?" I answer

My smile drops
ten thousand feet
into the ground

My eyes start
to fill with tears
but I blink them away

My heart breaks
into a million pieces
scattered all over the floor

I quickly recover
for the moment
and put a fake smile
on my face

"Isn't that gross?
He's like my best friend."
She continues

"Yeah, that's weird."
I say
But I used to be
the best friend

I look over at him
but I have to look away
because he just broke my heart
