A Broken Smile

I sit here with a smile on my face,Broken Smile
I smile as I breathe in deep,
I smile as I close my eyes
and I smile all day long;

the sky is dark,
as the freezing winds
seep into my bones,
I sit here smiling silently cold and empty;

I wait here frozen in time,
with my dreams torn apart,
my heart encased in a tomb,
I smile to mask my true emotions;

smile is all that I do day in and day out,
the mask that I wear is so perfect,
one needs to come a lot closer,
to see the tears trickling down my eyes;

the days are long,
the nights longer still.
I try to find the light,
but find comfort only in the dark;

emotions swell inside,
walking on a broken path,
I look up for the rainbow
hoping that one day I will get off
this broken path and onto a new one;

A broken smile is a smile that is false to hide the pain inside!!!
