everyone happy

Everyone’s Happy

On three, let’s play pretend

You smile, I smile, everyone’s happy

Let’s take a snap of it, too, shall we? *click

Before we snap out of this fabricated “you + me”

You know what? Let’s put a caption, too, shall we?

a perfect world –

What a perfect lie, what twisted words

If only they could see just how cold you are to me

But you know what they say,

When in Rome, do what the Romans do

Play by the rules of this sick social loo

So we can get more of those cringe-worthy LIKES

Ugh, my stomach churns from these swallowed lies

Funny how our faces aren’t showing signs

‘Coz we both know well what this means,

So on three, again, let’s play pretend,

one, two, three, smile!

for Pete’s sake, smile, so everyone’s happy.

-end-

Facial expressions can be deceiving. Sometimes we can read someone’s mood, thoughts, and feelings from their facial expressions like an open book. But some people can use their facial expressions like a mask that conceals their mood, thoughts, and feelings.

It doesnt mean that someone said he or she is happy its true. Maybe by saying that, hes jut trying to cover the sorrow he is feeling
