in this situation
i see myself the pitied fool, i'm afraid you're
pitying me, and it's scarier
than the prospect of wannabe-love or
the fact that i'm such a fool, a pining fool,
but i'd make such a fool of myself
if it meant you'd smile at me, for me
i want you to be happy, and if i could be the reason,
that would be
more than enough.
