I’m Happy

Fake it until you make it,
Does it work with happiness too?
Cause I put on a smile all day long,
As my heart bleeds the saddest songs.
I’m happier than I’ve ever been;
This is the most beautiful day I’ve seen.
I keep telling these lies to myself,
In hope that they come true someday.
I cry myself to sleep at night,
I dread the glimmering morning light.
Some days I just want to slit my wrist,
Give this life a bloody twist.
Oh, I wish to be buried deep,
Six feet under, I want to sleep.
But I wake up every single day,
And plaster a smile on my face.
“I’m happy,” I say.
“I’m okay,” I lie.

    Good to see you back, Shreya. I hope you’re doing well & it’s a fantasy poem.

    FYI: a lot has happened with my site. I’ve shutdown navinspoems.com (due to several issues) & have created a brand new site navinspoetry.com.

    Take care dear ✨❀️

    Shreyyyyyaaaaa hiiiiiiiiii!
    How have you been? It’s been so long. I hope you are good.

    This poem is so beautiful.
    I hope it’s just a poem and you don’t plaster your smile.

    We love our Shreya and we want her to smile always!
    And also to tell her we really missed her here. Hope she stays now. And not leave us.

    I really missed you girlπŸ€—

    Wow, Shreya. This is true for many.. well written! Sometimes plastering a smile is much better than trying to explain. Because most people won’t listen anyway. If they do listen, what they have to say probably won’t make things any better πŸ™†πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

    Glaring and unforgiving, the oppression of life falls heavy with your words. Your unblinking view on sadness speaks to places most do not want to think about. You create a lovely tension between life and the desire for more than life. Well written, Shreya! Good to read your work again!
