i am good at lying.
look at my face.
see my teeth, lips
pulled from gums,
see my bracelets
sparkle when my eyes
can't.

don't look at my wrists
my arms
my thighs
my tears.

mother,
do not worry-
i am smiling
wide, just for you.

Wow. :heart: This is the sort of thing you read and find yourself thinking about later, at the strangest times. It echoes.

That last stanza gives this a haunting feel. But it's lovely. Short, not-so-sweet, and poignant as always.
