My Lost Smile - Poem by Matthew Densley

I lost my smile some time ago
And for the while am stuck in woe
My pain is piled and stacked on show
I am defiled and feeling low

For every hill I’m forced to follow
I have no will to sit and wallow
There are no pills that I can swallow
To restore thrills in my life’s hollow

I can’t explain what fates intending
If all the pain is never ending
When all the gains are not worth spending
Then what remains is not worth mending

When laughter lacks I can’t be free
When pain attacks it’s hard to see
So lift the slack and let me be
And please bring back my smile to me
