Is it a smile

Is it a smile

A Poem by DarkStar

Are smiles really real? Does it matter if they are or not? Who are they really for?

Is it a smile if it is fake. 
It's still there, you can see it. 
So how can you tell me it isn't real. 
Is the truth really that obvious. 

Clara didn't see it, 
But I think Sarah played dumb. 
Maybe they are just used to this me, 
But I think Leo was the close to get it. 

I don't know if I want them to get it, to see the real me. 
The mask is stronger, now I'm older. I'm used to it. 
Part of me doesn't want it to leave, and yet part of me wants to be free.
