A joke

A joke to you, is nothing to me, it’s funny to you, it hurts me you see, I’ve been nothing before, I’ve been cheated and hurt, I’ve been broken and left, feeling like dirt, you laugh and you joke, you think I’m ok, one of these days, I’ll shout and I’ll say, I’ll tell you my story, and hope that it stops, my overreaction, in you’re word, my strops, you never once bothered, to look past my size, my heart that was broken, the pain in my eyes, my feelings were last, my car was the first, my clothes and my watch, my face is a curse, my smile is just painted, my words are rehearsed, please yes and thank you, all part of the verse, inside I’m screaming, just want to be seen, the real me inside, beating the screen, fighting and kicking, want to get out, my words are just mute, I scream and I shout, looking at me, like things that were lost, like cold winter mornings, the dew and the frost, the cloud from you’re breath, it rises it’s gone, just like the moon, just like the sun, nothings forever, and that one is true, always feel this way, this is nothing new.
