the smiles
we present
burn out eventually

you know?
i used to have this dream
where i change
the course of my life
and i become happy,
like something on t.v
problems solved in thirty
and then mock
the rest of the people watching.

i can't explain but
some days it gets me down,
i change from being the source
of light
to a black hole
and you can't reach me.

sadness has shades
and we could walk away
from problems all
the time
but misery lives in us
like a faithful shadow.
