I try to be happy

Try to hide the pain
From the piercing eyes of the world
From the crying eyes of friends
Everyone wants to help
But only one can
And sometimes I just reach
The boiling point
Like a pot of water
Bubbling over
I can feel the water spill
Over the edge
And sizzle on the stove
Burning up from the heat
I can feel as my heart
Cracks and splinters
I've reached the boiling point
And I can't stop it
