a laugh, a sigh, a smile, a tear

i laugh when i'm happy.
i sigh when i'm tired.
i smile when you do.
and i cry when i'm sad.
and i'm crying.
but not for long.

i know you don't mean to hurt me.
but my world has been turned
upside down... again.
oh no. i'll pretend to be fine.
but i'm crushed on the inside.

no, you can't fix this.
my heart has broken again.
and the only thing that could help
is time.
away from you, i need time.
no, i can't handle this right now.
sure, i'll forgive you eventually,
but not now.
and really,
calling me babe doesn't soften the blow.
it only makes me feel worse.

and i'll only cry for a little while.
and i'll appear to be fine tomorrow.
but really, i'm broken.
you've killed all hope inside me.
i know that's a bad way to put it, but it's true.

goodbye for now. i can't take it.
