Dont look so sad

Trace your fingernail across my palm
Count and connect the lines
Head line, to heart line, to life line
They twist and tie themselves into knots
Don't look at me so sadly,
I don't expect you to untangle them

Still a child and yet I have the lines
Worry lines, laugh lines, frown lines
From afar I still look the young girl
But up close...
See the weariness in my eyes?
Don't look at me so sadly,
I don't expect you to make me happy

My hearts weighted down by fatigue
I'm so exhausted, my soul cries for sleep
Caffeine runs through my veins
Eyes are propped open with a pound of make up
And all I want to do is cry
I'm broken, battered, and bruised
But don't look at me so sadly,
I don't expect you to fix me
