An attempt to fool them…

Eyes start to sting,

Chest slightly hurting,

A lump welling up,

A headache slowly forming.


Putting the coffee down,

Breathing in deeply,

And exhaling calmly,

You wipe away the stray tears,

Fake a smile,

And look up into those familiar pair of eyes…


However you fail the attempt at trying to fool them,

As a split second later,

You realise,

They were embedded with nothing but disappointment!
