the facade

the friendly facade of friendly smiles
is gone in an instant –

smile; despair;
smile; despair;
smile; despair;

why do we do this anymore?
a glimpse of momentary happiness?
an embrace from a loved one?

the inevitable despair and the masked pain,
a homage to the life after,
swirls around me – calling, calling, calling.

Should I go or should I stay?


I have nothing left to say. – Rudy
