Can You

Can you see the pain?
Can you see the suffering?
Can you even see,
Past this smiling mask?

Can you hear the screams?
Can you hear the voices?
Can you even hear,
Past this laughing noise?

Can you smell the death?
Can you smell the blood?
Can you even smell,
Past this floral perfume?

Can you feel the goosebumps?
Can you feel the shivers?
Can you even feel, 
Past this silky hair?

Can you taste the anger?
Can you taste the hate?
Can you even taste, 
Past this fake love?

Can you see the pain?
Can you hear the screams?
Can you smell the death?
Can you feel the goosebumps?
Can you taste the anger?
Or does my smile hide it all?

    This was a solid piece. Yet, so many questions...where are the answers? If they can't answer you, you'll have to resolve it yourself. Nicely done!
