Fake Smile

She’s not who

She has described

Masked from others

Blind to the eye

She knows

How much she hides

She knows

How much she lied

All the darkness

Put aside

All she the truths

She’s denied

Within herself

The light subsides

Flickered out

Burnt and died

The happy smile

On her face resides

Hiding broken pieces

Which she confides

All those tears

Have long dried

No more remains

Of how she cried

All consuming hurt

Of pain denied

Buried instead

Within her mind

The gloomy shadows

Of which are tied

Follow her

Right by her side

The hovering clouds

With rain supplied

Drench her tired body

As she sighed

Alone in her room

Where she resides

Nothing’s left

But a fake smile so wide
