what lies behind my smile

in the clouds

i smile

as i walk down the hall


i smile

as i sit on the grass


i smile

and take a deep breath


i smile

as long as there are people around


i smile

until i am alone


the tears start falling

glistening little raindrops on the canvas of my face

silent as my cries for help as i smother them down

just for a moment

i let myself cry


i smile

as i wipe away the tears


i smile

as i run the cold water to make the swelling go down


i smile

as i walk out of the bathroom


i smiile

as i say hello to you


i smile

but underneath

a raging storm lies


i smile

but truly i wish that you would only listen to me

instead of telling me what you think

all i want is someone to genuinely care


i smile

as i pick up the phone


i smile

as i text you hello


i smile

as we make small talk


but i can't do it anymore

i need someone to turn to

and i begin to cry as i tell you the truth

and you accept me

and you love me

and i think

maybe i'm not so bad after all

maybe people really do care


so i smile

as i remember that you care about me


i smile

and there's nothing but happiness behind it


i smile

because i know that you know me and you still love me

even if i don't love myself


i smile

because despite it all

despite the days where i feel lost at sea

or the days where everything is shades of gray

or the voice that tells me i'm not enough

you care

you listen

you love me


i smile

because i have hope
