Behind a smile

All my life I have hid behind a smile

I laugh and smirk and smile when on the inside I am slowly dying

I look back on my life and feel nothing, but regret

Regret because everything I have ever loved and cared about I have systematically ruined 

I never wanted to be here alone 

Hiding behind a smile

While deep inside I cry and mourn for the loss of happiness 

But somethings are just meant to be and I guess me and you are not one of them

So with this smile I must say goodbye
