You asked me how i was doing
and you believed my lies
but  you couldn't see the envy
in my eyes.

You asked me how i was
and i said fine
but you couldn't see the anger
i felt straightening my spine.

You asked me how i was
and i said good
but you couldn't see a broken heart
from where you stood.

You asked how i was
and i said great
but you couldn't see the tears
trying not to escape

You asked how i was
and we talked for a while
but all that time
and you didn't even notice
the hurt
behind my smile.

You asked how i was
and i told you everything
but the truth,
"I'm me.
confused. angry. sad.
and wanting to scream"
