English Poetry

I wish I could believe
 that your smile is true
and not merely a fake attempt to
make things appear unchanged
as they were, what seems like,
an eternity ago
I wish I could believe
that your words are the same,
and not just phrases devoid of emotions,
saying what you really intended to say

I wish I could believe
that things are still the same
… Alas, I know that’s not the case
not anymore

    Better a bitter truth than a betraying smile.

    The poem is very correct. The world today is filled with fake smiles.

    Nice feelingful poem…
    Liked very much

    Today the smile is to hide one’s disturbing feelings within
    And the wisdom is to stop self from believing in anything ….!

      True sir… At the same time, smiles sometimes are faked for the sake of others, for the sake of old times, even when one does not find the same happiness as earlier upon meeting someone
