My Lulling Tears

April 21, 2010

Last night, I cried,
Like I have night after night,
For months now my tears have lulled me,
Undoubtedly, it will be the same tonight.

But what else can I do,
When everything is falling apart,
When my world is crashing,
And the worse has just begun to start.

I’ve tried faking smiles,
Everyone believed them too,
Never noticing the crack in them,
Or the tears gathered like morning dew.

I was hurting,
But if I kept smiling
No one noticed, but,
Then the lies began piling.

Whenever some asks,

“How do you feel?”
I answer simply,
“Fine enough to deal”

The truth is,
I feel numb
I don’t feel anything
That’s how bad it’s become
