Sometimes you forget

Poetry By: sleepingwithsirens

My feelings as of late. Read please? "Behind my smile is a hurting heart, Behind my laughs I’m falling apart , Look at me closely and you will see- The girl I am just isn’t me"

"Behind my smile is a hurting heart. Behind my laugh, I'm falling apart. Look closely at
me and you will see, the girl I am isn't me."

And

"Behind this smile is everything you'll never understand."

But you realize just how lonely you are

A little more each day

The numbness becomes your pain

A smile is only fake

You almost forget

But you start to feel again

Sometimes by accident

And certain things make you realize

Just how alone and sad you are

You get used to being just another pretty face

Something to distract the time

Something to be replaced in time

When someone new comes along

And has all the things you don't posses

When they tell you that they love you

All you want to do is

Turn to them and say

"Don't lie to me."

It's a shame but love is starting to feel

As fake as my smile

None of you are any different

But I wish you were

It figures the sane one

The one I actually enjoyed being with

Would get away

And become

The one that got away

The one that I wish would come back

If only for a day

You realize how much you miss them

They gave you something to aspire to have again

They say that I'll find you eventually

But where are hiding because I can't seem to find you

You must have been really good at hide and seek as a child

So where are you love

Maybe I'm not ready for you

Or you for me

maybe you're in New York

Trying to make a living off the fashion industry

Or viewing the Skyline from your humble apartment

Maybe you're in San Francisco

Driving across the Golden Gate Bridge

Or maybe you're in France

Eating pastries at ladurée

But where ever you are

I hope you find your way to me

But you realize just how lonely you are

A little more each day

This numbness becomes your pain

A smile is only fake

Sometimes you forget

Sometimes

Sometimes

You forget

It's a shame but love is starting to feel

As fake as my smile

But sometimes, sometimes you forget
