I'm smiling

I was happy. I was smiling. I wanted to dance. My heart was fluttering. It literally felt like I could be happy. Like I could smile. Like I could laugh. But I couldn't.

For when I laughed, a tear rolled down my cheek. For when I smiled, a gust of reality shook me. What was I thinking? Happiness is not for me anymore.

I was smiling because in that fleeting moment, I remembered your touch. Then the tempest of trance broke. I was crying again. My arms tightened around my shivering figure. Pathetic! Cried my heart.

It was right. I was pathetic. I was miserable. My hands yanked my cheeks up, trying to form that illusion of a smile.

I pulled on my hair. Smile, you bitch! You're looking again. Your're watching me. And I'm trying to die.

My knees gave way. I collapsed on the sharp grass of the winter night. I wanted to speak but the lump in my throat won't let the voice out. My head shook frivolously. Smile. Smile. I chanted and chanted.

I put down the flower. My vision was blurry but I could see your grin.

I shivered and trembled. I lay down beside you.

I closed my eyes. The soil sucked my tears.

I'm smiling for you.

"I'm smiling for you," I whispered my secret. And I knew you were listening.

For a breeze kissed my cheek. And I knew you were happy.

Gabrielle Collins: I really liked the story but I wish it explained things more without drawing it out. Some things went too fast for my liking. Nonetheless, the book was captivating and since I've picked the book up this afternoon I had read it at any chance and stayed up till 11:30 to finish it, on a school night.
