A Frowning Smile

A Frowning Smile short poem

Did you know

your tears break my heart?

I see the frown

beneath that smile

Did you know

you can’t see from afar?

Staying with what surrounds.

Just look ahead another mile

They don’t know

that you hide in your car

when you start to drown

and lose it for a while.

You should know

who you truly are.

A beautiful sound

covered in denial.

I’ve come to know

You’re a precious broken heart

that loves to frown

with the strongest smile.

I once was walking in the dark , I thought I was living the life. Thank goodness for Rehab. They started to set thing right, It was there I found The Lord and and saw the Light. Now these poems I started to see and hear. When they come in sight I write. Thank You LORD. Now all the other, the past is, how they put it. Just water under the bridge. GONE. Never to return. Now I am Just a laid back kind of girl, Who's about to spread her wings and fly away to a brighter day.

The words are so well entwined, pleasantly contradictory.
