Pretend Happiness

She gathers the shards that are left of
her heart and tapes them together.
It isn't a perfect fit but it will do for now.
She balls up all her pain, sorrow, hatred, and love.
Whips the tears off her face and puts her mask on.
All other people see is a girl who looks happy,
Who really is torn up inside.
