The man that forgot how to smile.
Like a curse that fixed his face in time,
There are no more emotions left to express.
(Back in reality.)

They say that only way out is to break free from reality. These quotes wondered aimlessly in the
man`s head as he Unknowingly walked down an unfamiliar street.
As he turns the corner he sees an equally attractive young women walking towards him.
The man forced a smile as she walked pass.
But his tensed jaw has molded... into the shape of hate,
Hate to this unkindly world.
Hate for his insincere handshakes and fake smiles.
Hate for what he has become.
The pain flashed across his face once more... for a split second in time.
There was a lift on the corners of his mouth.
A tiny happiness is shown.
But to him... it was an awkward expression, an expression that has forgotten by time.
Here lives a man, when the moment the he has something worth smiling...
He realizes that he forgot how to...
