    dotsA Smile to Hide the Paindots

    Though she's surrounded by many who love her,
    she's alone.
    You can see it in her eyes,
    there's an emptiness in her stare,
    a longing from deep within her soul.
    When she smiles,
    it's so pretend,
    so unreal.
    It's her way of hiding her pain,
    her unhappiness,
    her way of masking the truth from the ones she loves.
    She lives each day in denial,
    suppressing the emotions that she feels,
    hoping they'll just fade away.
    Although she's crying on the inside,
    she'll never shed a tear,
    never let them see her weakness,
    for she feels she must be strong,
    not only for herself,
    but for the ones who love her,
    the only ones who care.

      I don't know if you are refering to Mona Lisa in this write, or writing it genrally. I scrolled up and saw that Mona Lisa picture as your account picture, and not one that you have selected for this poem. I will take it as though this is not about Mona Lisa. Yes, people often appear happy, but if you look deep into their eyes, you can tell how they are actually feeling. People often act differently in public then what they are actually feeling, and you highlighted that point really well. Good job

      Ah, Mona Lisa's Smile..

    That's what this poem (along with the picture) reminds me of.
    And you have described it well (in my opinion)- a smile to hide the pain.
