My So-Called Life

I smiled, then cried.
You laughed. You lied.
You left. I tried
To pick up the pieces of my life.
It shouldn't have been such a surprise.
I should have seen this one before I 
Fell too hard, got in too deep,
Before I believed that you were in love with me.
I smiled, then cried,
Because you laughed and lied.
You left while I tried
To get back to my so-called life.
