Because I’m A Faker

I wear a fake smile

Pretend to be happy

Deep inside though

I’m breaking

I wear this mask so people can’t see

Because I don’t want their pity

 

I’m miserable inside

And they will never know

But something’s got to give

Something’s got to break

 

I promised I will cry no more

But crying helps

A momentary paralysis of the pain

I let it all out

I let it drown me

Because I want to let go of you

 

I’ll continue to pretend

Only because I’ve been addicted to faking it

You see, I don’t mind pretending to be happy

Because it’s better than you seeing me cry

I Cried Without A Reason

Softly I wept, my tears just fell

I did not know the reason why

Time was frozen, and so was I

Lost in nowhere; your hand cold as ice

I looked up but the light hurt my eye

Below lay the darkness of the abyss

I looked around the crowded street

I see no familiar face

In between sobs, I hear a song

of whisper from afar

The sons came home to their families

resting in silence on the ground

Your eyes were hard, you looked at me

And instantly I felt the pain

Whatever it was for whatever reason

I cried without knowing why
