Fractured Smiles

September 21, 2010
Fractured smiles on porcelain faces
Solidly empty, miniscule spaces
Between words that define the mind
Between not seeing and being blind
Fight the fight that makes you stronger
Live a little, then live longer
Try to laugh while your lungs can take it
Give away your heart so he can break it
Run to somewhere you've never been before
Love a little, then a whole lot more
In case you fall, take your wings
And don't forget to detach your strings
Your puppet master isn't here
So there's no need to shed a tear
Let a thousand fall from your glass eyes
And in the midst of one more sunrise
Appreciate what you'll never get
Don't worry, the world's not ending yet.
