A smile can mask a thousand thoughts

But a thousand smiles wont hide the truth

An empty stare this time has wrought

That spark gone out you should never lose

Left to perish it may never return

What once burned brightly enveloped in cold

A distant glimmer that from past did learn

Shelters for now but to life does hold

The fire struck grows to a blaze

Heated blood scolds though it is not shown

Emotions in check behind blank slate

A time will come for life to atone

That smile of a thousand now in place

Forgotten in an instant no cause for concern

Discontented malice in more than a trace

Fire now raging a corner now turned
