in the curve

sweet words leaving your lips
are they
do you think
she is not strong enough to take bitterness
that comes with life’s lessons?

innocence on the surface
it is
never what it seems
do not
take it on face value
there’s so much more behind the pretty face
than meets the eye

maybe it is you
that the smile hidden in the curve
of sweet sugary lips
conceals weight heavier
than your heart can carry
