Look not See. Listen not Hear.

I hide my grief
behind
sarcastic FB updates
make all of you
laugh
with my self-deprecating humor.
You come running
to me
when you are sad
asking me to cheer you up.
You invite me to all your parties
because
I'm the life of any party
you say.
You 'like' all my
statuses
photos
notes
and say you miss being with a
nut
like me.
Not even once did you ask
'What is wrong' all those times
my throaty laughs
ended midway.
