I pay for every single smile
Nights of crying and loneliness
Like pushing rocks a mile
that fall back on me bottomless.
I pay for every single happiness
Days of being my own exile
Like walking in the eye of storminess
that shows all the madness awhile.
I pay for every coping style
Years of distant, forgotten sadness
Like hiding the warning FRAGILE
that leaves behind my pieces in recklessness.
