A poem called This smile


#1

You think i’ve got a handle on it all
deep down inside i’m heading for a fall
this smile, it’s just a superficial lie
a mask that hides the tears i cry

I tell you everything’ll be alright
you kiss my lips and hold me tight
i give you strength but for myself i’m weak
no self belief,no hopeful words to speak

That is very lovely. It is also very relatable. Thank you for posting this.
