What Lies Behind A Smile

What Lies Behind A Smile

Behind my smile lies a blade
With swiftness that can not be delayed
A wicked tongue caged by cracking teeth
Unwillingly forced kindness with willful rage beneith

This knife only sharpens over time
Trying new ways to release its slime
An edge with a poisoned tip of bile
With the soul purpose to defile

So be warned if you cross me
For I will set it free
It can do more than you believe
An unending power to deceive

Spewing truthful lies
Till all pity for you dies
Turning your world to ash
Until you yourself you slash

So mind your tongue and I’ll do the same
For our lives are not the others game
Be gone now on your way
And please try to have a good day
