Like Music

My life is a tragic song
Playing in a major key.
Today I am full of self- pity,
But I pray: don't cry for me.

My heart is full, buoyed by love.
Silent joy, yet undying.
The fact remains my heart is lying,
Because, deep down, it's crying.

Weeping tears light seldom sees,
Continuing the pretence
Paying and repaying all expense
For continuing silence.

Allow me my brief moment.
For if you truly knew me,
You would not deny the misery
That hides behind the melody.
