Be Still


Be Still

I fake a smile
So no one sees
The hurt and pain
That’s killing me
Theres no one to tell
No one to confide
I think I’ll just stay here
Ball up and hide


Close to breaking
Fading smiles
I’m faking
They begin to crack
And underneath
My fear
And silent
Screaming teeth


Under the fasade of me
In the heart of me
The pain is mine
Slowly it kills
I just want to stay here
And be really still

Some great lines, quiet can be good and sometimes much needed, others times ... it stays far too long when one needs to speak. be well, k

StandingBear commented on Be Still


The thin line occupied, to sit there and ponder for a while .. a little longer .. all is temporarily quiet .. quieter .. then voices are heard.

The true philosopher and the true poet are one, and a beauty, which is truth, and a truth, which is beauty, is the aim of both.

Ralph Waldo Emerson, American Poet (1803-1882)
