Sunny Side UP by Villa-Chinchilla

The Giveaway

Seemingly chipper today
I wait
for raw nerves to compel
my innermost demon
to screamin’

I smile and greet
each character with a smile
ever polite
from grace and style
on this darkened stormy day

with my allergies
in the swollen pain
of rotting joints
a twisting spine
and piercing migraine

Hiding the status quo
here I go
painted on patience
out of my way to say
“Have a beautiful day!”

A sincere wish
under facade
until becomes real
this pleasant charade
