There is pain on your face
You don’t think I notice, or that anyone notices, for that matter. But I do.
You wear happiness well. But I can see right through your shell. You’re hollow and empty. You feel like an abyss.
No one smiles with fear in their eyes and tears peeking out of the corners.
No one laughs like there’s a sword in their stomach and a knife in their heart.
You may be able to fool others, but you can’t fool me.
Because you have one knife in your heart, but I have two.
