Smiles fall false from cracked, closed lips,
Breaking, shattering, exposing the lies,
Lying hidden so long,
The only truth the bitterness and anger —
Released in bleeding, beating ugliness.
Scorn, judgment, misunderstanding greet,
Eyes afraid to meet,
Hearts no longer beat,
Walking this path alone down a dead-end street.

Despairing. I do love the rhyme on the last four lines, love that the emotions greet but not the eyes.
