Ephemeral Smiles

Underneath the willow lays the couple
They smile then hold in the darkness,
It doesn't make the darkness go away.
The bad things are still out there.
The nightmares still walking.
When they hold each other they feels safe but not better
"it's alright,"He whispers."Im here and I love you."He lies to her.
For just a moment or two she believes him
Her thoughts and voices go away
When he holds her she's happy
But then he leaves her
The thoughts an voices come back
Stupid .Just pull the damn trigger
They whisper to her
She can't take it any more
She puts the cold icy barrel to her temple
She whispers.."I love you forever and always.."
Pulling the trigger into an eternal blackness
