A month ago, I would've killed for this

Requited emotions on the outside

But still so drastically different

If you take time to consider

One of the the balance is heavier

Much heavier

And I can't lift the extra weight

No matter how hard I try

I feel weighed down

Instead of light as a feather

I feel so smothered

When I should feel free

I feel so broken

When I should be the most together I've ever been

Nothing you say makes me smile anymore

I just cringe

But my emotions, they speak otherwise

How can something so simple

Be so complicated?
