Scrape the Smile from Your Face

You smile like super glue is lining your mouth
If you shut it
No other sound will ever come out
They call you happy-go-lucky
As you laugh yourself to tears
Smile so white
It burns like a forging knife
Melting the glue
So lips never touch
Your happy radiating
To all the others
Spreading the cancer of your forgery
No one can live up to the glimmer of your gaze
No one admits to their feelings depraved
Your cell built with your wall
A theatre of hope
Wet with salty loathing of life
Oh, the tears of the joyous
With no immunity
Cringing in the light
Of their self, the piety
