Painted smile

For you I'd walk more then a mile

Until the rain washed away my painted smile

Down the drain it went with my love

You ran away when push came to shove

Left me alone to fight this battle by myself

Leaving my heart cold and broken on the very top shelf

While I kept this pain on for so long

It felt like you could do no harm; no wrong

The painted smile was on so long it left a stain

A horrid stain that left with it terrible pain

This stain might stay here for a long while

But still in the shadows you can see my painted smile

Must be a great guy if he's worth all those tears and stains!
