forcing myself to be happy for her

I secretly silently start to cry.

Tears rolling down my face

But not a word comes out my mouth.

My lip begins to quiver

But I bite it, hard.

My heart slowly melts,

As the goop dripping from my ribs,

Starts to form a musky puddle on the floor.

A puddle filled of my emotions.

With my screams,

And cries,

And burns,

And lies.

Be happy for her.

I continue to repeat in my head.

Just be happy.

And the memories start to poor and flood in.

I should be happy for her.

I am selfish.

I am happy.

I wipe the sharp tears from my cheeks,

And smile.
