my smile remains

my smile remains

thinking back ....remembering might have beens that never were

"she smiled til she thought her face would crack"

seeds of broken promises
uncomfortably caught between my teeth
refuse to be dislodged
even as i floss with open ended speculations
or rinse with rosy tinged insinuations
so here i sit
hitting the space bar between ennui and joi de vivre
yet my smile remains
the embellished privacy curtain for my soul
a false premise perhaps
but it belongs to me

Yet my smile remains..a false premise perhaps but it belongs to me.... How I can relate to that line Lydi - sometimes we just have to paint on that smile and ignore what is right in front of us - I call it "survival". As always - your words, the art you chose - together a masterpiece. Hugs, Julie

"... yet my smile remains the embellished privacy curtain for my soul.". You really are such a wordsmith that at times I feel like I haven't earned the privilege of reading. As always, you touch chords and open doors that no other poet does for me. Keep on keepin' on and keep on smiling. ~Jim

Two amazeball lines I am a much better person for having read: "even as i floss with open ended speculations" and "the embellished privacy curtain for my soul" This is me, happy dancing all over your poem. Thanks so much for sharing this with us...

"a false premise perhaps, but it belongs to me" .. So true, our smile is one of the few things circumstances could never mar. Beautiful writing Lydia!!

Behind the facade lies sometimes great sadness , pain and loneliness. Poignant write you expressed this vulnerability so well.

A close friend guided me to your page and I am not disappointed...you have an amazing
style of drawing back the curtain to a vulnerable soul. I enjoyed reading this visceral piece of regret and sadness. Well penned! :)

Well, I thank you friend then! I appreciate the read and the comments. Be well. lydi**
no one really knows what's the meaning of the smiles we show except ourselves. sometimes, a smile could be an effective shield to distract others from seeing our true emotions. short yet meaningful.

Exactly, Gabrielle. A smile can hide the emotions we choose to keep to ourselves. Thank you for you.. read more
Your poetry is an inspiration as always. Your magical use of words is amazing.
I am trying to find my way round here still!

This is a very clever piece. Disappointment is tinged with subtle regret, all delivered with the clear focus provided by brevity. This is wonderful stuff!

Nice to see you on this site, Jerry. Thanks for the comments. Lydi**
I think we hide behind false positive smiles, it not only protect our sanity but other's as well...although your soul knows full well when that curtain comes down. Great read Lydia.
