Crying Smile

January 1, 2011
When everything starts to turn around
And the sun decides to show its face
The darkness comes again
And the happiness fades away
Happiness is meant for nobody
I have learned this through the little life I’ve lived
No matter how old or how young
The circle never stops spinning
I have never met a person truly happy
Longer than a few day at most
Something is always ruined
The wheel of the world is always at work
I know they say what doesn’t kill you
Makes you Stronger
But looking at you kills me
I would rather be weaker with you
Than stronger without you
The smile on your face kills me
I used to smile back
But now I know it’s not for me
I don’t know who its for
But its not me, and it kills me.
To know you have other reasons to smile
Smiles are contagious
But yours just makes me cry

This is really sad, but in a way also really precious and sweet. I like this :)
