How High?

April 3, 2008
By Sara Blowers, Monroe, NC

One more fake smile
Im afraid my face will crack
One more forced chuckle
My lungs might collapse
One more jump, at the height of your choice
Might be my last

How long do I need to keep this persona in place?
I do this to keep you happy, but if the consequences of which hurt me,
how important is it really for me to always have that strategically perfected
smile on my face?

One more, might be my last.
How hurt will you be then?
Will it be high enough for your liking?
Surely for mine.
