Waterworks

Tears of the kind that I don't know,

I thought I would be fine wherever I go,

But even though I say I don't cry,

And I laugh so much and simply try,

These tears leak out through my eyes,

Why can't I hide behind this disguise?

You say a few words and smile at me,

And I look away; don't want you to see,

Time ticks away but I still can't meet

Your eyes even on a crowded street,

Those words hurt me deep, you have no idea,

Of the hatred and hurt and the inky fear,

You cause me to feel so down and depressed,

Spoiled my day, no time at all to rest.

I wanna swear and rage and rant at you,

But forget it, I don't give a damn about you.
