    dotsjust a liedots

    smile like youre not crying on the inside
    a broken heart is easy to hide
    false cheerfullness, and makeup
    can hide the tearstained eyes

    laugh a little louder, act like you dont care
    pretend to be having fun
    and remember not to stare

    smile, laugh, dont stare
    so many things to remember
    dont freeze up, or start to cry
    that would ruin this pretty picture

    laugh a little louder, act like you dont care
    pretend to be having fun
    and remember not to stare

    but you do care
    and you do cry
    and you want to stare
    and this is just a lie

      This is another one I had added to my favourites, and again it makes me want to cry.

    "laugh a little louder, act like you dont care
    pretend to be having fun
    and remember not to stare"

    This is just so great. I'm choking up and losing words.

      Yes it is definitely easy to pretend. Wow...I read that and I kinda realized I pretend a lot. If I smile and I laugh and I act like I'm not dying on the inside, a part of ME almost believes it. I can push my pain down way down inside of me, but that doesn't mean it's not there. I guess a lot of people do that...anyway...you hit somewhere with me with your words...great job. Thanks for writing this. ~hailie~

      this is a really nice poem.
    "smile like youre not crying on the inside
    a broken heart is easy to hide
    false cheerfullness, and makeup
    can hide the tearstained eyes"

    i sometimes feel like that & i guess that thats why i liked that verse so much.you took the words right out of my heart. lol
    i also see ppl in my school that act like some of the things you said.it's either the act fake to fit in or just R fake.
    anywho- i really liked the poem.good work!

      ...[censored]...another piece as strong as the first one i read from you. I love the strength in your words, even though they seem so simple. There's so much power, and anger and hurt...it's...i don't even know. Just keep writing, i can't wait to read more.

      Beautiful, I am falling in love with your broken hearted poems.
    This is such a strong poem that I have tears in my eyes. It makes me think so much of the past...I really don't know what to say beyond that. This is just amazing. It kicks so much bum and you need to smile through your tears and be proud. There aren't many people who can taken something so upsetting and make it so great without it sounding like the same thing we've all read over and over and over again.

      this was definatly a strong work...I enjoyed it and for a four-word description that summed it up pretty well...that could be someone's "life-story" lols. I loved this as a whole and I don't think the format is lacking in any way...usually I'd frown on repetition but your stanza "laugh a little louder,act like you don't care/pretend to be having fun/and remember not to stare" actually in my opinion intensified this one and I felt they were good lines...one might assume staring is alittle thing not worth mentioning but I've had problems gazing off into space/not making eye contact when I'm bummed...alot of these lines really hit me the write way...I think this is a very powerful work.I'm adding this one to my favorites. The only thing I would have liked to see is a little more detail but even that I don't feel personally as a reader for this one is needed. great write. keep writing.

      The sentiments of the piece was quite emotional and strong. The form of the poem itself seemed a little random in the reading. Overall, a good poem.
