False – for Prompt 68 A Smile To Remember

The false smile
of a sometime friend
Just pretend
Glittering eyes
Be careful not to

A breathless kiss
A broken game is all
there this
And how you beamed
while smashing all my
hopeless dreams

A soul apart
Behind your smile’s a
place to start
Frozen in time
a perfect moment
lost in rhyme

Awash with pain
I know it never
comes again
In just a while
all I’ll remember
is your smile

    I’ve had “relationships” like this. It was like a drug I couldn’t quit although I knew it could destroy me. You tell the brutal truth beautifully.

  3. Lovely in its simplicity.

    How sad! One cannot be sure with such a smile. Wonderful lines Helen!


  5. Oh my, I could feel the angst, the disappointment and see that faint smile in memory. Well done!!
