Even the best fall down sometimes


The smile you see is
held on by a
thread
And any moment it just might
tumble off
and reveal the waterfall
of tears I hide
that threaten
to cascade down my cheeks,
flowing emotion
and feelings
held back for
too long.

Wow, you did a really great job with this! Let me guess the song that inspired it: Tied Together With A Smile? :)
