IF YOU BREAK

I feel like I have already been shattered.
I can’t shut down
I can’t sleep
Can’t tear myself away from
Thoughts that leave me crying.
If I break,
How can I tell you not to?
How can I tell you to be strong,
Or smile away something that could hurt you
So much more than it will hurt me.
When inside I am terrified?

If you say it’s nothing then I wish it could be.
You’ll be okay
And this is fake.
A little bump in a road that really isn’t ending.
But we don’t know yet.
How do we know at all?
Tell me,
How the fuck I should stop this
From being anything.
Because if you break,
So will I.
