Broken smile

by RoseBlood   Apr 12, 2009

There are lots of tears behind her smile
A lot of hurt behind her cheerful mood
She's been like that for a while
Can't you see it's all because of you?

Her world has been crushed in such a cruel way
You are clearly dead in her eyes now
She gets a new heartbreak each and ever day
While knowing that you just don't care...

She seems fine in everybody else's eyes
It takes a lot of strength to play that role
She tells to herself life goes on
But, what happens when you're not yourself anymore?

And late at night
When she lies alone in her bed
She lets the real her overtake her soul again
She drowns in her own tears
And lets reallity kill her heart once more....

I hide behind "she" in this poem....

    Well I have a few things to say about this poem. Firstly it has immaculate word choice as well as imagery. Next there is not a single line through which you don't feel true emotion. Third, The flow is fabulous. Fourth, if I were you I would change each and ever day into each and every day; but maybe I am wrong. Fifth, keep up the terrific work, because I give this a 5/5!

    Aww... wow... this poem is AMAZING! I knew from the title that I would love it and relate to it... I feel like I'm the "she" in this poem... It's almost as if you've written my feelings for me... This poem is wonderfully written! Not only do I love the imagery you've created but the poem's structure and flow is perfect as well! I LOVE IT! Great job :)

    This is very sad, but VERY good. It seems incredibly well thought out. Thank you for your latest comment, (on my latest poem). I added a few stanzas to it and made it more clear as to who it was about. I started to write it, but I couldn't think of anything else to write so I just ended it. I liked what I had so I just posted it anyways. Anyways, very good poem!

    This is indeed and sad but true write..telling the pain that is behind a lot of peoples smiles. And how we appear brave and strong..but inside we re trying to survive. LOL I loved reading it..coz it was so well expressed. My fav poems are about "hearts" and "smiles!".. (they reveal the true us). Will keep reading ur great writes..
