Is this what you want?
Your smile says “I’m fine.”
While your eyes that were once bright have become lifeless.
The jokes you make are a cry for help.
Yet, that pride you have ways you down.
So here you are; faking it all.
Controlled by someone who knows so little about your world.
There’s so much to be said, but it’s not the time.
My words would be wasted to your ears. So for now I keep my vow and say no such word against yours; for now.
