    Only Two Shoulders

    Yeah, I joke about him, but it really hurts. He left me not 3 weeks ago after finding out he'd gotten me pregnant. I'll get over him, but right now it hurts.. Bad. And I'm gonna cover it with a laugh, and pretend everything is okay, 'cause there is shoulder to cry on, anyway.

    Laughter

    When people make jokes about me, i try to laugh it off to show it doesn't bother me. when really in the inside it hurts alot and i am getting mad. I don't want to show people they are hurting me so i need to laugh it off.

    Everyday....

    everyday i laugh to hide the pain, weather it be physicall pain, or emotional pain, there is usually some kind of pain there, and i very rarely will show it in real life, I just laugh to hide the fact that I am hurting.
