I haven't had the happiest life, and this is what happens when some of that unhappiness poors' out of me

During happy times

People tell me

To be happy too

That since everyone else is happy,

That it isn’t the time to be sad

But isn’t it

The opposite?

When everyone else is happy

Isn’t that the perfect time to

Break down

And

Crumble?

To go up to your bedroom and

Cry your eyes out?

Then they won’t be able to hear you

Over all the joyous

Laughter

And by when you come back

Down

No one seems to notice

Your red eyes

Your broken heart

Your shredded feelings

But it’s not like they’ve ever noticed before

So why would they start caring

Now?

And as you feel that fresh pain

Thudding through your chest

You put on a fake smile

And say, “I’m fine!”
