Mishap

Lost, alone and lovely
All by myself, it's true
This might be how it's supposed to be
It's okay, I conclude 
 
I understand this mishap
It's pretty plane, you see
I don't understand why people think,
I need someone with me
 
I'm happy by myself
I smile all the time
I'll put my love up on a shelf
And hide whats deep inside

I'm having difficulty explaining this
To no-one else but me 
I can't help but hide the truth  
From all who may well see

No matter how I write it  
It all comes out as lies  
I'll keep the honesty deep within  
Still seeing it in my eyes

    Very sad and, as DP says, i hope not true. Well written too, but i think it would be improved if the last stanza was swapped about, maybe: I'm having difficulty explaining this / to no-one else but me./ I can't help but hide the truth / from all who may well see/ No matter how I write it / It all comes out as lies / I'll keep the honesty deep within / still seeing it in my eyes. Thank you for sharing. eph.
