The End.

There's a sadness behind these eyes,

That not even I can explain,

I thought a tough exterior and a fake smile

Would be enough to mask the pain,

But it's not.

 

My heart has an ache,

I feel empty and numb.

The delusion of thinking I was happy,

Now alone with nothing is my outcome.

    Welcome to MPS and may I say what a beautiful sad poem on the subject of love, a subject that as poets we must question always. Deep and thought provoking. Thank you.

    wonderful imagery, and achingly honest
    'I thought a tough exterior
    and a fake smile, Would be enough
    to mask the pain, But it's not.'
