"The world moves for love... It kneels before it in awe..."
- A quote from The Village

I smile on the outside to hide the pain I feel inside.

A tortured soul inside of me
hidden where no one else can see.

Its scratches and screams to be released
and yet my smile has never ceased.

The sorrow that I wont admit.
The suffering I can't permit.

There's nothing left for me to do
I bet you'd even smile too.

This hurt will last for quite awhile,
trapped behind my plastic smile.
