I Do..

The laughter rings in my ears.
The smile is pasted on my face,
forever real and forever fake.
I know that you think that I don't see,
that I don't know,
that I don't understand,
but I do.
I see how easily replaced I am,
I know how someone else can slide into my spot,
I understand that they are more welcome,
than me.
I do,
see.
I do,
know.
I do,
understand.
So while the laughter rings in my ears,
while the smile stays plastered on my face,
I see,
I know,
and,
I understand,
I do.

Very deep and nice use of repetition it puts more emphasis on how you felt. One of my favorites
