Just Smile

Just Smile

A Story by The Realist

'Just smile'- she said to me, just smile
And so i did...For her,
For 6 years my smiles were forever genuine,
For 6 years and only 6 years was i happy to be apart of this world, 
For 6 years oh how my smile was genuine.
However, Little did i know that those 6 years were only a tease of happiness,
Little did i know that my genuineness was to be replaced with a cold façade.
6 years gone in a blink within only a night.
When 'he' came in and took my innocence with him,
'Just smile' she said just smile.
And so i did. For her
12 years i stand here smiling without emotion,
12 years i stand here smiling without the women who had given me such a demand,
12 years i stand here smiling when she never stood by her own words,
12  years i stand here hurting,
6 years stolen and never returned 
12 years of  keeping a constant, hard façade,
Praying for a change in the future years,
For i still stand here smiling, yes i'm just smiling.......
For me.

really impactful, yet so well done

I'm new on here, and it would be such an honour if you can review some of my poems as well!

This is the first piece Ive gotten to review in a while so pardon if its slightly rusty. I loved this however. It sounded just a smidgen repetitive but the emotion was strong enough to hit me where it counts for sure. I felt a good connection and I think you did an awesome job. :) Well Done
