Broken Smile & Bloody Tears

Broken Smile & Bloody Tears

My broken smile is crooked it's jagged and it's sharp… 
My eyes cry tears of blood and in the process lost their spark…. 
My broken smile is halfhearted it's not so full of glee…
My bloody tears built a puddle I used its reflection so I can see… 
My broken smile is all alone maybe I should give in to my frown… 
my bloody tears are heavy as I see my reflection drown…
My broken smile gives away nothing it conceals all emotion...
My bloody tears run down a stream and contaminate the ocean…
My broken smiles ridiculous ain't nothing to smile about…
As my bloody tears ran down my face to the broken smile in my mouth…. 
It made it feel the metallic taste salty and o so full of rage…
It taunted the broken smile of mine who smiles while in a cage…
Broken Smile
As the smile drank in the sadness the anger and the grief… 
It swam across the broken smile and made sure to stain my teeth… 
It asked it what you are smiling for can't you taste our raw emotion….
The broken smile said I've known this all along that's why my smile is broken…
