The Man with the Broken Smile

Tuesday, November 16, 2010

Day after day he waits
For the sun to come up
On the tomorrow he hopes for
The man with the broken smile

How long has it been? He doesn't remember
He chooses not to
Things are a lot easier for him when he pretends
The man with the broken smile

Will he ever be whole again?
He doesn't know
Will he ever be whole again
The man with the broken smile

He sees with black and white eyes
The absence of hues he doesn't seem to mind
He contentedly hides behind the lies
The man with the broken smile

People pass by, he nods hello and goodbye
He forgets their names and he doesn't know why
Everything is lost in a listless haze
To the man with the broken smile

Will he ever be whole again?
He doesn't know
Will he ever be whole again
Asks the man with the broken smile

P.S. I just realized that I used the same line from a Maroon 5 song ("Look for the girl with the broken smile" from She Will Be Loved). I swear I wasn't thinking of that while I was writing this. Stupid. Oh well.
