What Lies Behind My Smile - Poem by Dark Renzo

A broken life
A broken heart

The scars of time
These scars are mine

Once a loving child
Now a wandering soul

Life is now so silent
I hear my heart breaking

As the razors edge
Guided by a thin blue line

Releases me of this pain
Releases me of this masquerade

Which is... my smile

    Much is hidden behind a smile, I for one know it only to well...for it can hide scars, pain, and hurt and at times we wonder how close we come to ending our lives because we can't go on. Hang in there.......I enjoyed your words... (Report) Reply
