    dotsHands are Cleandots

    Go on and wear your plastic smile
    Shrug off the pain
    Scrub the blood clean
    No skin off your back
    Your life is on track
    Make believe for a little while

    Don't even check for my call
    You won't get any
    You never got many
    And so you expected that
    Pretend that little fact
    What, did you expect me to crawl

    Let's role play, I'll be you
    I dropped a good thing
    I wanted a quick fling
    I hushed what felt right
    Replaced it with what might
    Now I ignore the truth

    Does that sum everything
    So keep your fake smile
    I'll wear mine awhile
    But I have no regret
    Mine will be real yet
    I hope you feel its sting

    My smile's fake but my hands are clean
    I have no need to scrub
    I never betrayed love
    My conscience will stay clean
    I would rather be me
    Than to have planted a "what if" bean

    It may seem benign but just for now
    You know it will grow inside
    I won't be there to confide
    Rather hurt some now than hurt forever
    I'd hurt even if we were together
    You'd find a way to break me somehow

    You know I'll be okay
    It's just temporary
    My smile's just forced
    And my will will come
    But yours is plastic
    Try fixing that one

    You can fix how others make you feel
    But how you make you feel
    You have to hear every day

      I really liked the first stanza. It was perfect! =]
    You started off with a great image, and rhyme scheme!
    The pattern is new, and flows very well.

    My favorite part was the reference to how she needs to scrub teh blood clean, but yuo've stayed clean!
