When you called me, and I pretended to be fine;

When you asked how I was, and I said great;

When I laughed at your jokes, but held my tears;

When you asked what’s wrong, and I said I was tired-

I was secretly hoping for you to say

“I know you’re not okay, but I love you. It’ll all work out in the end, I promise”.

But instead you said “okay, goodnight”

And you let me drown in my deep abyss of sadness.

Silly of me to have thought

That you could have been the one to bring me salvation;

Silly of me to have believed,

that you were capable of seeing within my soul.
