THe doctor gave me a prescription.

A thirty days supply of pure happiness.

He told me to smile, and I'd feel instantly better.

He failed to mention the side effects,

that holding a fake smile would only worsen

the feelings I feel, likepain and sadness.

He didn't mention that I'd feel,

like screaming every second of the damn day.

No matter wat I did, the drug never wore off.

The fake smile had been on my face for so long,

it was a force of habit
