Being A Woman

She simply smiles
her smile
closes her eyes
And looks away

The words he speaks
Cut so deep
She can barely breath
So she just smiles

Touching her hand meant to soothe
Sends shivers down her spine
Not to be rude she doesn’t move
But instead just sits and smiles

Pulling her in
To holds her close
She let’s him be
And smiles

She cannot show
how weak she feels
Wanting to break down and cry
So she smiles instead

Deep inside
Her heart is breaking
But she cannot let him see
So Turning away she just smiles

As a woman
She cannot just be
she’s not just a woman
She’s also a lady

No matter
The pain
No matter
The hurt

She puts on
A brave gave
And simply
smiles

She wants
To kick
She wants
To scream

But all she does is smile
