His half smile

by codebllack

There’s something about the half smiles.

Half smiles

When there’s a turmoil crashing
At your shores
But you pull it together
As you walk through that door

Half smiles

When you promise her you will be okay
As your insides sprinkle down like sand grains
Inside your bone caged body

Half smiles

When you tell her you will see her soon
But that soon is beyond the length
Of the lifetime you promised together

Half smiles

Between the silences of
Exchanged glances

Half smile

When a dream is about to shatter

Half smile
When you’re hurting and changing and rebirthing

Half smile
As you slowly let it kill you
