Hollow Smile

August 27, 2010
Where did her happy summer go
Memories of laughter and smiles
Warmth replaced with only desolate humidity
Adventures become making it out of bed
All the love she knows is empty and raw
That happy summer never got to exist
Replaced with days spent on the floor
Tying herself together with a Hollow Smile
A small upturn of her lips will last one more day,
If she drifts off missing and wishing
About the old life she took for granted
Where everything was true
Now she can't remember how it feels
To laugh a laugh that's real
To smile a smile that's genuine
To cry tears that really mean something
And aren't just dripping down uselessly
As the only sign that her heart is still beating
