My smile shows I’m happy

You fell for it, right?

Look no further than my lips

For inside the demons fight.


My laugh shows I’m happy

You laughed along, too.

Music to your ears

but to me, it’s out of tune.


My wit shows I’m happy

Just me and my jokester ways.

Wacky character impersonations

Get me by, most days.


My smile shows I’m happy.

My laugh shows I’m happy.

My wit shows I’m happy.

Sometimes it isn’t so.

Sometimes my heart says no.

Sometimes full of woe.

Sometimes...

      Full of emotion. Love the rhythm. And I can so relate to how that feels. I love your sharpie pic, too, and the caption underneath, which is a poem in itself. Great piece of work! Many votes and sharing!

      Looks can be deceptive! This quote has whole new perspective with the pain- smeared poem you have here.... all these lines... so simple yet so painful... so morose...

      Sad but beautiful!
