"Isn't life a series of images that change as they repeat themselves?" -Andy Warhol


A plastic smile
You wore as a mask
An empty heart
You wore as a badge
A secret ache
You hid from the world
A hollow laugh
You could easily fake
A rusted knife
Carved into your skin
You drew a smile
To hide your pain
And then laid down
To be alone once again
