Behind this perfect smile,
A fragile soul in denial.
Though ridiculously time consuming,
Frustration remains an elusive thing.
Pretending all the time,
Now a real habit of mine.
Who goes through a rough patch,
Tires of standing still soon enough.
Moments with a treasured friend,
Stranger’s heart is on the mend.
I do not hold back my tears any longer,
With you, no need to push any further.
You feel my hands that are cold,
In your warm embrace, I unfold.
