I am strong.
I do not let the heartbreak affect me.
I put on a brave face so as not to let them see,
even though my heart is breaking
even though I know that I am loved,
it doesn't feel like enough sometimes.
I long for a kind of love that I haven't
I know I should not feel this way
and should just enjoy the independence
that is in my life now,
but I can't help but want what I have never had,
and wonder if I will ever have it.
