Killjoy

Bubble up

‘Til I nearly burst

Like a balloon

Every fiber within me

Longing to tell the world

Make it feel my joy

My heart sings

My feet dance

I am delirious with happiness

And this delight must be shared

Shout

Bellow

In a singsong voice

To whoever wishes to hear

Find those whom I love

For those who love me will surely be glad

They will feel the triumph

Radiating from me

And laugh for my blissful victory

They will laugh for me

Stop

Frown

My loved one listens

But I know he is bored

He feels nothing of my elation

I stumble back

Too shocked to say more

He does not care for this thing

That’s caused me so much pleasure

He does not care at all

I can’t believe his cruelty

He lacks the energy to humor me

To be happy for my happiness

To rejoice for my joy

If my excitement was a bursting balloon

Then he has popped it

Pierced it

Not only my eagerness

But my heart as well

I find he is angry

About trivial matters that mean nothing

Next to my thrilling announcement

Nothing

Next to our supposed friendship

I am furious

But too proud to tell him

How wounded I feel

Instead of arguing

I leave

Determining never again

To share my happiness with him

Never again

To allow him to break me so

I will smile

And laugh

And sing

Within myself

With others around me

But not with him

Not ever

Synopsis
When I wrote this I was extremely angry, so it's not like I still retain the feelings I talk about here. Either way, here's a closer look at the excitable thoughts that go through the head of a teenager. Enjoy!
