I wonder if

Behind the smiles 

Pleasantries and whatnot

It’s all just an act

Their love is just words

Ash swirling on the wind

A strong color

Faded in the harsh sunlight

Ease will not be coming

Only an embrace of reality

A real hard pill to swallow

But a panacea when ingested

One’s own applause the only to be heard

One’s one care the only to be had

The rest is just background static

Playing on an unwatched tv

In a waiting room somewhere boring
