The Only Way

The Only Way

They say the person who
Laughs the loudest and
Smiles the widest is
The one who is happiest

But don’t they know?

A loud laugh is the only way
To cover the sobs and
A wide smile is the only way
To hold back the tears

Void

It would be easier to say
I’m tired of feeling such soul-shattering sadness or
Holding in a horrid degree of hate or
Crying acid tears that tear open my flesh to the soul

I wish I could scream
That my heart is being torn apart
By fiery rage or mind numbing fear
But this is not the case

It is harder to admit
That I am being consumed by
The black hole of bleakness
That comes from being unable to feel at all
