Her Beautiful Smile

Her Beautiful Smile

A Poem by BbCherryTomato

They say she has a beautiful smile

That it's contagious

And that it can light up a room

But they do not see

The sadness in her eyes

They do not see

The world of pain

She tries so hard to hide

Behind her sweet, smiling lips

The world where dwelt

A soul too wretched

To come out into the light

A creature so torn and damaged

No tender ministration

Could soothe or cure

Her tortured soul cries in silence

Hidden from all eyes

Behind her beautiful smile
