Sadness

She smiles as they laugh around

But her beautiful eyes remain

Endless pools of sadness

They call themselves her friends

Yet they do not see

Past her confidence

That masks the hurt underneath

She catches me staring at her

And she gives me a smile

The same sad smile

    I’ve never written poems after looking at art. This one captured her allure perfectly.
    Great work!

    As a person who has suffered from depression, these words express so much to me.

    If you have time, please take a look at my poem “Demon Clouds” – it discusses a similar subject, albeit you have expressed it more succinctly! Thanks x

    I do not think the picture does your piece justice. You have wonderfully captured something that the woman hiding does not realize can be seen, which makes it all the more tragic.
