The More You Know

How does it feel
To be broken inside

Yet appearing fixed
From the outside

I will tell you

It looks like a smile
Until you unravel it

Beneath the smile
Is a haunting pain

Invisible, indescribable
Torturous heart-filled pain

You look my way
You can never know

You look my way
I will smile again

So you can never know

I laugh at how easy
It is to fool others

With a smile

But instead I feel
The insufferable pain

Instead of the warmth
My smile should give me

It just hurts instead

Over time it hurts less
But never hurts none

It just hurts less

So please know that
Despite my trying hard

To get away with a smile

Because I will try
To fool you again

With the same smile
Lies through my teeth

A broad smile
Hiding words

It does hurt
It still hurts

The more you know
