A Porcelain Smile

“A Porcelain Smile.” by; Sonja P. (a.k.a. Copper D.W.)

 

Perfect.

The edges, smooth and clean.

The colour, white and pure.

And shape polished and finished.

With crimson lips, a smile gleams, lighting up the darkness from miles away.

 

Contagious.

A laugh, hearty and full.

A voice, optimistic and positive.

A love, calm and forgiving.

With a single nod of head, the joy spreads like a disease, passing onwards through the people.

 

Lies.

A mask, perfect in all hardships.

A mood, hiding all sorrow.

A smile, faux and broken.

With love comes lies, and as I falter my mask becomes impeccable, immune to the emotions plaguing me.

 

Sorrow.

A mask, perfect in all hardships.

A mood, hiding all sorrow.

A smile, faux and broken.

You’d hope someone would see through your facade, but no one can see through the mask.

No one can see through the mask.

No one can see behind your porcelain smile.
