When I’m with them it hurts.
Their light shines too bright
So bright it’s suffocating.
I can feel the feel my jealousy and sorrow engulf me
As I watch them be happy and affectionate together
Laughing and flirting together
Sometimes, they turn towards me and I see her look at me
I take a deep breath, look them in eyes and give off a big smile
Even if it hurts, I smile.
I would gladly bear these emotions and put on this fake smile,
Anything as long as she’s happy.
Anything to keep her smiling.
