Fighting back the tears



A sad song plays on the radio.
She fights back the tears
while trying to smile
at her next customers.

The lovely couple
is oblivious to her pain.
They’re madly in love
oozing affection for each other.

She wants to throw up.
This is the last thing
she needs to see.
Is this a cruel joke?

How ironic that
she’s surrounded
by so many people
but yet feels so alone.
