Treasure Island

Unintelligible Susurration


Smile


One hundred years apart
Is what it seems

Until then remorse into the depths
Of the drowning pool of lies

Don't bother reconstructing
Something already established
If you cannot

Smile for me
Smile for the world
Smile for us all
And we shall smile internally

Make me believe you are true
Like the madness of this all

My vacant laugh echoes
Off your brimmed cry
Pleading the mercy you shall not receive

Heartless blackhole
Eventually light shall escape
Gather around in awe
And witness the extravagance

    Sometime that makes it easier, other times that make it all the harder. Is a smile upon tears defined as being happy or sad? A calling to be something your not, oh you try with all your heart, because that is what your friend wants. But sometimes it can only be temporary. A moment, then a moment gone. As the sun sets on the horizon the clouds roll on in and it begins to pour. (Report) Reply
