Not Tellin’

Well, there's an isolationist technique. XP

Well, there’s an isolationist technique. XD

A depressing poem for the holidays ’cause I go against everything that is normal. XP

Just like ice inside a fireplace
None see your suff’ring inner face
‘Cause they don’t know ‘less you tell ‘em
So you smile and keep up the pace

The warmth is fire that scorches you
They think you’re fine but they’ve no clue
‘Cause none can know ‘less you tell ‘em
Yet they all smile and say they do

They see rainbows– your lens is grey
None can understand your dismay
‘Cause no one knows ‘less you tell ‘em
But you’re not tellin’ anyway

  1. Dude, this is awesome! You could turn this into a hit song. (I’m dead serious.) My favorite part: “‘Cause no one knows ‘less you tell ‘em /
    But you’re not tellin’ anyway.” I love how you talk about the main person smiling and then in the second verse you talk about all of the other people smiling. I don’t know if you intended for it, but it reminded me how, in some aspect or another, we’re all the same. We’re all hiding something, we’re all strangers. We’re all too concerned with ourselves to worry about other people; so we just plaster this fake smile on our faces and keep on walking. Also, great job with keeping the syllables consistent with your use of the ending ‘n. Again, great job!

    • Thanks! Yeah, that ending couple of lines are what actually sparked this whole poem. XP Yeah, everyone, on one level or another, all have their own secrets, and so, like you aptly said, we just plaster a fake smile on our faces and keep walking. Thanks a lot!
