Face Like Glass

The fake smiles bruise
more than the tears.
Supposed to make me feel
better.
The pretending will lead
to the real feeling
they said.
It’s clear they’ve never tried.

The fake smiles hollow me out.
Pushing down the frowns like
swallowed words.
They advise me to be
an actress of my own reality.
Well that won’t do.
I refuse to play the part.
