Plastered Smiles


Plastered smiles, Primped hair,
Vacant words, Vacant stares,
Broken promises, Woven lives,
Dreams forgotten, Glazed eyes,
Stiff limbs, Pin-Straight spine,
Insincerity, Left behind,
Painted nails, Curled lashes,
Ground churns, World crashes,
Words escape. Hearts fall.
Hopes destroyed, Fears call,
Tears escape, Hurt seethes,
Trampled ground, Brown leaves,
Knives slip, Fingers curl,
Stomachs retch, Insides hurl,
Restless sleep, Endless nights,
Bodies scream, Losing fight,
Twisting turns, Ups-and-downs,
Hurricanes, Hidden frowns,
Enticing death, Consuming mind,
Cleverly covered, Lives unwind.
