assorted thoughts

Thought unspoken
Itches in my nose
And bursts forth
In a sneeze!

--------------------------

Bicycle
In yearning eagerness
For movement
Propels me ever
Faster
Propels me forward
From my seat
And is still.

--------------------------

You smile,
To hide the horror of your broken spirit
You smile,
To hold the torrent of unshed tears inside
You smile,
To mask the pain that daily consumes you
You smile,
Pushing concerned friends away with a joke
You smile,
Pretending your heart is not withered
You smile,
Thinking others think you are happy....
You smile,

And Joy weeps.

You're most welcome! I loved the first one most, amazing figure! I agree with the last. I have written something of the sort: "Translation of a Smile" on the forum. Similar theme!!!
Thanks for an enjoyable read!
