What are you looking for?
1 month ago · · sad,
i touch the glossy photograph,
an unrecognizable face
smiling at the camera with happiness and grace
that little girl who laughed out loud
and sang her tiny heart so proud
she didn't care about the others
but there came a day when this little girl changed
her smile slowly sank down
down to the deepest bottom
where her image on the world wished she would go away
humming quietly to herself, fearing that someone would hear
these thoughts running across her face
"what happened to that little smiley girl"
i don't know.
i don't know what happened to her.
she's faded away into the thin air.
she's disappeared and vanished.
i crumple the photograph with my hands
and throw it in the trash
because i know that little smiley girl
would never want me back.
