a painfull smile


Behind my smile is pain
that runs deep into my soul
filling in the cracks of joy with
hate leaving no room for hope

the pain you can not see
soon you will not smile either
as I swim into the sea of loneliness
allowing sadness to fill my lungs

I snatch my smile from your memory
as my body sinks I will live a lie no longer
never forcing a smile, that if you would see through it
I wouldn't be moving in with the fish and saying goodbye forever

    Powerful imaginery...

    Listen to this

    as I swim into the sea of loneliness
    allowing sadness to fill my lungs

    makes you feel the pain and at the same time think that even though it sounds lonely and sad, the water around you in the sea of loneliness is keeping you company hence you are still going...

    Great poem. (Report) Reply
