I lie in my dark bed.
Rum, warmth, taste of oak.
I’m tipsy,
Pink Floyd
I sing aloud.
I scratch myself.
I feel the pain.
I am alive.
No one cares.
I send him a message,
No reply.


I get out of bed.
Put on a mask.
Plastic smile.
No one notices anything out of the ordinary.

The plastic smile
A little baby that wriggles and plays
All day long
And then when night falls
Tired,he goes to sleep
And thoughts that never were
Do seem to seep
Hidden creeks...
A Deluge.

I don't get how Maurice, guitargeorge and you can just randomely write poetry as comments.
Damn I wish I could.
Or was this picked off a song?

I love the way you've used the picture, I'm glad you used it at all.

Are you okay? I love what you've written. But are you okay?

I don't know about the others, but Maurice is, well, brilliant.

Lúthien Táralóm said...

Get over him Ate. He isn't that good for you. Yeah I'm okay. Relatively.

Até said...

Hmm..

saptarshi said...

No i wrote this...it came to me when i read ur post...

Lúthien Táralóm said...

@ Ate - don't call him Maurice. I think he's only given me permission to call him that. You should ask him that.
@ Saptarshi - I like the poem. A little vague maybe, but good.

well i believe in something ou know and i've seen that this actually works........a smile, even when faked make both the person who's smiling and the person being smiled at a litlle happier..........

Smile, when your heart is aching
Smile even thought it's breaking
Although a tear maybe ever so near
Smile.....

Até said...

I'm sorry, I shall remember that in future.

@ Subhayu - I like that Michael Jackson song. However I used the term 'plastic smile' here not only to symbolise a fake smile, but a lot more. Like a fake me..
@ Ate - Just ask maurice. It isn't much of my business anyway.

Didn't care much for this as well. Sorry.

Lúthien Táralóm said...

@ Maurice - I don't care much for what you think of this one either. I like it. Especially with the picture.

Subhayu said...

Lúthien Táralóm said...

@ Subhayu - Do you? And then what do you do?
