This was inspired by a painting my dad got for my mom for their anniversary... I don't like the poem that much, but the painting is awesome!


Fake Paint

Colors donce on the canvas
Lights
Music
People
Happy people celebrating an unknown event
or just for the sake of celebrating
Children giggle and spin in circles
as their parents dance and drink merrily
Not acting their age
But amid all of the joy
something lingers there
like the smell of bad meat
but it isn't anything you can
see
hear
touch
taste
or smell
It is a presence that you just know is
there
Something only you know
and no one else
You know not everyone is happy on the inside
they just wear it like masks on their faces
to hide their pain from the world...
