    That the smile you see is on my lips.
    That my heart is full alright
    Just full of dark darkness
    It is strong and it is pounding
    I could explode anytime now

    That today I don’t want to talk, can’t talk
    That I just want you to hold me,
    My head on your chest just hold me
    I want to listen
    Listen to my thoughts; please don’t say a word

    That the food you just served me would drive foodies crazy
    That sadly I can’t taste it
    I have lost my sense of taste; I can’t taste
    I have only the taste of darkness on my tongue

    That you can’t read for me tonight
    That I can’t bear happily-ever-afters
    Not tonight
    Tonight boy doesn’t get girl
    He hates books and she loves warm coffee

    That you can’t hug me tonight
    That I can’t unfurl my arms to let you in
    Too many broken pieces held together by a fabric of darkness
    I am not sure they can hold your squeeze
    I hug myself to myself holding them in place

    That tonight I just want to be calm
    That I want to try talk to myself
    If I am still enough I can get into myself
    Meet this darkness, have a word
    Get to know each other

    How do I tell you that I am sad?

    In your embrace I feel your sadness and in your eyes I see the pain
    The world may not farthom but I,I alone feel the weight of your sadness.
    Each tear,each sigh,connects with my inner being
    And I wish I knew what remedy would bring back the the glow and joy of a happy heart.
    Only but for a short while my dear will the sadness linger
    For in the nick of time, like a whirlwind
    The billows of immeasurable happiness shall overwhelm you
    O only how I wish I knew how
