Vanishing Smiles

Grin from ear to ear
and watch it disappear.
With a harsh action,
gone in a fraction.

Kind words don’t always heal,
smiles aren’t always real.
Nothing vanishes sooner than a smile
but won’t you stay for a while?

I’m begging you please,
I’m down on my knees.
My heart can’t take these questions,
learn from my expression.

From far away it might seem true,
but I’ve done a good job of fooling you.

I think it's rather good, though it could use a bit of work.  Keep writing, you've got talent. :)
