. Smile, Laugh, Love, Live. Poem by Amy

. Smile, Laugh, Love, Live.

Rating: 2.9

Smile, laugh, love, live
I walk down the street, smiling, laughing
Loving, living and he’s there
My knight in shining armour
I smile, feel loved and laugh
Smile, Laugh, love, live.

He pulls me into his arms
Holds me tight and whispers
Smile, laugh, love, live
I do as he says until I walk home
Staring at the mess before my eyes
Welling with tears I run, no longer
Do I laugh.
Smile, love, live.

They give me comfort
It doesn’t work though
And he’s there, I feign a smile
Trying not to relive the nightmare
But memories come spilling back
And my smile fades
Love, live.

Its been weeks since the incident
My heart still recovering from the
terrible thing that happened, he tries to be sorry
For me, but its been so long and his words
Don’t work on me anymore. I don’t believe him
And he sees that. He pulls me into his arms
And tells me it has to end
Keep on Living

No longer do I smile
Or laugh
Or love
I just live, this nightmare of mine which
I still yet have to overcome
Everyone’s through with comforting now
And I know I must forget the past
But I can’t, I have nothing left to smile
Nothing left to laugh
Nothing left to love
But myself
Nothing left to live
Full stop

I have to say...when I started reading this poem. I thought it was going to be another drab rant about living, loving, and laughing...like one of those lame quotes that girls put on their facebook page. By the end I was very impressed, and felt ignorant for assuming such things. Well done.
