Behing the smile.

Behind that smile is a life once known.
Lost forever. Hidden. Denied.
Behind that smile is a pain unending.
Constantly burning, brown and unbearable.
Behind that smile a shattered set of dreams.
	Crushed, scattered and forlorn.
Behind that smile a tear stains.
	Scorching and decollated completely.
Behind that smile a truth submerged.
	Never to be seen or told.
Behind that smile, a depth incomparable.
	Chasms, deep and unrevealed.
Behind that smile lies a past
	Tortured, terrifying, and full of regret.
Behind that smile a joy
	Unending, faithful and unconditional.
Behind that smile a brown eyed girl
	Whose past is hidden
	And depth is securely caged.
	Whose love is constant and yours.
	And tears cascading fall.
Behind that smile is simply
	Me.
