Painful Truth

Another painful shatterment

I should have known

But.....did you know

My heart is weak

Blows, like punches to the stomach

I should have kept the lock

The one I placed on my heart

I wouldn't have felt this

No one would know the truth

They'd continue to believe 

They'd believe my smile

My life

They'd think I was okay

Believe my "I'm fines" 

My unnoticable false exterior
