Crossed Fingers

I cross my fingers
And my eyes
Hoping to stop the flow
That rolls down my nose

I quickly wipe
Them away
And turn and smile
Pushing my hurt away a mile

I join in laughing
And don't seem to care
When you poke fun at me
But I just want to flee

I want to run away
From you all
Can't stick around
Or my emotions will bound

I need to keep them in check
Until I leave you all
Where I can sit down
Lay it all on the ground

And simply cry the pain away
