the smile

Friday, October 21, 2016


you let down your guard
someone noticed
a smiled slipped out when
it wasn't supposed to
the feelings were buried
or so you thought
but apparently
you hadn't
you try to be tough
you try to be a force to be reckoned with
but what do you do
when that stranger
that nobody
says hello and smiles
you could feel it crack
the ice on your heart
that is
and a smile slips onto your face
it wasn't so bad
maybe
next time
it'll be easier
and you can be that stranger
for someone else


this one was inspired by a smile that i gave someone
