Smiley smile

By    

Have you ever smiled wide for so long,
hoping that others would catch on,
to only have just discovered the truth
that people really never cared about you?
But, you thought that they did
and so you continued your struggle
keeping the grin,
even though it was trouble.
Yet, nobody noticed, no one even cared,
about the fact that that smile,
wasn't even truly there.
How do we continue on, knowing this to be true?
Can, will someone help us?
What do we do?
The heart is truly deceptive
and all I can see is evil
because while our face smiles, eyes glisten
in the back of the mind we want to leave them.
Used, abused, broken and yet our smile smiles on.
I wonder who would notice if suddenly it were gone?
