Poetry Tuesday – Empty

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.

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