Teen Ink: 'Vulnerable on Facebook'
And then hit the enter key
Avoid the reason why I'm here
Read the happiness of other people
Whose hearts aren't breaking in two
I take a deep breath
And notice the trembling in my hands Exhale and click the button
Wondering if I wait, if things may change
Being hasty could delete me from your thoughts
Instead my fingers hit the switch button
Listening to my brain and not my hurting heart
It now reads "Single"
Never thought Facebook would hold so much power
But now my new status is there for everyone to see
And now everyone knows it
