I Laugh... - Poem by Dama Tristeza

I laugh,
To pretend there's no pain.
I laugh,
To make you feel okay.

I laugh,
Because it's all a lie.
I laugh,
Because I just can't cry.

I laugh,
Because I need you near.
I laugh,
Because you're just not here.

I laugh,
Because you think I'm fine.
I laugh,
'Cause I'm not okay inside.

I laugh,
because I just don't know.
I laugh,
because I'm gonna go.

I laugh,
Because I need you now,
I laugh,
Because you're gone, somehow.

I laugh,
To hide myself from you.
I laugh,
Because I have to.
