I am smiling for you

In the photo.

Hoping that my arresting smile 

Will stop you from looking further.

I don’t want you to notice

That that smile never reached my eyes

That my dress hides my bruises 

That the scars on my soul are invisible

That the constant pain I am in

Is camouflaged by

The smile.

I don’t want anyone to have an inkling

Of what I am put through everyday.

So I smile.
