It’s an Art Form

Smile because
you’ll get a sweetie. Happiness will follow.
Smile because you should.
Don’t be ungrateful- look with your eyes
your mind is a lie.
Happiness is held in camera lenses,
It’s subjective, right?
Hold your breath. It’ll be alright.

I deserve this.
After yearning for marble beauty
I’m finally seen as a statue
to be adored.
My cloud with silver lining is
laced with mercury.
After years of
chasing the smooth ideal
all I want to be is a
painting.
My smile is made of
oil and mistakes.
I’m a hard piece to take in:
Walk away. Come back again.
The point of a painting is layers.
