Behind A Smile

Poem By Jordan Jacobs

Alone I cry, hiding it behind a laugh
Alone I remorse, hiding it behind a smile

My loneliness so deep it cuts into my soul
Leaves me an empty shell without emotion

As our paths cross
I look into her eyes

In that second her eyes met mine
The world stopped and I spent eternity with her

The joy I felt in my own laugh
The memories forgotten on a distant memory

As time began again
All joy was lost

Left in the sparkle of her eye
Left in the radiance of her face

Her eyes told me she loved me
But her heart was with another

So……………..
Alone I cry, hiding it behind a laugh
Alone I remorse, hiding it behind a smile

Mourning Mist

The shadow emerging from the morning mist
Raises inside of me a storm
Of anger and sadness
That swirls in me like a tornado

Light...Dark

The light fades to darkness
As I recede into the shadows

There to live. There to die

My Life

My life the Storm
The harsh cold
The unforgiving wind
The thunder that wakes me at night

Sadness

The light fades to darkness
As I recede into the shadows

I sit there remembering…….

The Real Me

Hidden inside of me is
A little boy curled in a ball
Crying
Hiding it behind a laugh
