Painful Heart

By Glass eyes

Sadness swells around my heart,
im trying not to fall apart.
I put on a smile for the world to see,
even though I just want to cry and show the world the real me.

Even though I knew happiness wouldn’t last forever,  I still had some hope but boy I’m not clever.
My heart screams and cry’s,
yet my eyes have never been so dry.

Bottling it up so the world won’t see,
and making sure no whimper slips free.
For if one tear beings to fall,
I won’t be able to hold it in at all.

So for now I’ll continue to smile and wave,
even though your all I crave.
As my heart still beats in pain everyday,
i guess in the end we went our separate way.

    This was beautifully written and it really resonated with me. I know what it’s like to paste on a smile and a mask even though your crumbling on the inside. Your poem reflects this perfectly though. I hope writing about it helps, it does help slightly for me sometimes.

    More than just pain, but brutal honesty from the inside in spite of how we refuse to feel on the outside. Love is strong; it does conquer like a war between emotions. And when it ends, it does bring you down singlehandedly. Great ink! ... ~Devlin

    no matter who or what you are you can't hide your true self forever. Doing so will eat you up. Very relatable poem. Nice job. JD
