Maybe - Poem by Jessica Goodell

Why won't he listen?
He just doesn't get it
I need him!

He thinks I'm overreacting
Maybe I am
Although I doubt that.

He doesn't see the pain
Hidden behind my eyes
And covered with a fake smile.

He rather talk to someone else
Than try to understand
The pain I'm going through.

He won't even say I love you to me anymore
Just three little words
Would make me feel so much better!

He won't try though
He's too worried about making himself happy
Or so I think.

I wish things could be easier
I wish he was closer
I wish I was with him now.

The tears continue to fall
I want them to stop
But I'm not sure how to do it.

I want him to be happy
Even if I'm not.
But again I don't know how to make him happy.

Maybe if I held the tears back
And didn't let him see
He would be happy.

Maybe if I make him believe I'm happy
He will be too.
Maybe I could convince myself too.

I don't know what to do
I just want to give up
Maybe I should.

Until I know what to do
I'll put on my best poker face
And just fake it.

Maybe I'll start to believe it
And so will he.
