#NaPoWriMo #15-This is My Smile

This is my smile
I put it on carefully
For you

You see, I’m not really smiling
No, I’m not
But I’m pretending to be

Beneath this forced upturn
I’m thinking of all the things
You deserve to hear
All the things you won’t like

I could be hurtful
I could be hateful
I could be…

Here is my smile
I put it on carefully
But it is aching
