Broken smile…!

I sit here with a smile on my face, 
I smile as I breathe in deep, 
I smile as I close my eyes 
and I smile all day long;

the sky is dark, 
as the freezing winds 
seep into my bones, 
I sit here smiling silently cold and empty;

I wait here frozen in time, 
with my dreams torn apart, 
my heart encased in a tomb, 
I smile to mask my true emotions;

smile is all that I do day in and day out, 
the mask that I wear is so perfect, 
one needs to come a lot closer, 
to see the tears trickling down my eyes;

the days are long, 
the nights longer still. 
I try to find the light, 
but find comfort only in the dark;

emotions swell inside, 
walking on a broken path, 
I look up for the rainbow 
hoping that one day I will get off 
this broken path and onto a new one…!
