Vacant Smile

A vacant smile adorns a lost face
Bravely fighting back tears that no-one should see
A toughened masquerade masking a wilted heart
Dreams in tatters
Mind haunted by the ghosts of good times past
Recounting the moments
Torturing the soul
They both wielded paths in different directions
Left with little choice
He had to let her go
Still if that’s how the plan had to play
Day on day
Why does the pain still grow?
Why does the…
…hurt
…emptiness
Where’s the meaning?
This vacant smile adorns a lost face
Today’s mask cracks a solitary tear
Fearful
Tomorrow it may finally crumble
