Sad Smile

Pressed between her lips,
a smile, crookedly sad,
do you see her pain?

When I see someone with a sad smile it breaks my heart. I always want to give a big hug because I want to ease their pain. Hugs,~Chessly

Yes I do, Christine; because you have made me see it via your verses here. You have very succinctly awakened emotions, sad though they may be. Well done. Thank you. Love and best wishes to you,

Concise yet fully realised. Your powers of observation are superbly matched by your insight, perception and compassion, Christine. I love the notion of "Pressed between her lips"... how often mine refuses to stay where placed and slips badly, fooling no one but the one who put it there... Excellent work. xx

Most will only see the smile. Poignant and very powerful in so few words.

Christine - you just get in the car and start it up.
But never drive out of the carport!
You put it into park and let the reader travel to where ever it is
going through their life at the moment.
I love it!!!

when I see this in my life with strangers
since I know exactly how it feels
I always try to offer them the warmth of kindness
and when I see this too with those I know as Fee
mentioned it is easier because I can hug them...

but of course a sad stranger may like it?
Hugs are such a great feeling of compassion since we
all know how it feels to smile on the outside
for others when we don't inside our-self feel the same...

A smile I have had from time to time....perhaps we all have....wonderful writing, say so much with few words.I'm such a fan of that!
Reviewed by John Flanagan 7/24/2010
In three lines a whole world of feeling is expressed, and as George rightly says why write a book when the reader can fill in the rest of the pages. Here, brevity is the soul of itself.

Powerful little number: just because a person smiles on the outside doesn't mean that he or she is happy. Know that all too well. Well done!

(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Tx., Karen Lynn. :(

unless you looked close
you would think she was happy
she hides pain so well

Wonderful ~
And yes, I have felt myself there, and your poem is as if I were looking at my mother now at the end of her life's tale ~ and I felt this smile as I walked as a bride, and sometimes I recite it in my sleep.

Oh, I do know this smile..I have it sometimes..A beautiful poem, Chris, one worthy of reading more than once...

Nice to see you writing again.
Peace, love and light,

I see the pain in everyone. You cannot dislodge pain. This piece was short and sweet.

Reviewed by George Carroll 7/24/2010
Why write a book when you can convey it in few words and let the reader fill the rest of the pages within his mind. Excellent!

A full characterization in the brevity of a few words. Simplicity is the greatest art form. May love, joy and peace reside with you always my dear friend. Jon Michael

Adorable write, Christine! I love this!!! It never ceases to amaze me how much can be said with so very few words. Well done!

Reviewed by Felix Perry 7/24/2010
Chrissie, this says so much with so few words...each word seems to hit like a blow to the heart. To see such a sadness covered by a false smile in someone you love is tragic. To know their pain or even that they are in such pain and not knowing why or what you can do is so difficult to accept. Sad but excellant poem as always when you comes out honestly and openly...
