Pointless comedy,
hollow laughter
no comfort for me now

You see this pasted-on smile
and you think everything is fine?
How can you not see through me?

I'm just this whisper in the wind
something ephemeral
almost gone now

But you act like everything's normal
like I'll be here forever
like I'm one of you

How is this not obvious
that I'm hurting and out of control?
that I'm not this happy or perfect?

I don't fit in here
it'll be better when I'm gone
just a little while more
