Smiling Pain

a smile comes in through the sorrow,
and for a brief while, you forget the pain:
then you get, in a flash, dawning reality
that the pain is still there, a dull ache, an emotional stone deep in your chest 
then the brightness of your smile dims
and you continue to sorrow once more
howbeit, this time,
with a ghostly wisp of that bright smile..
