The black and white world.

'cause certain shades of blue could only be seen by a few.
some wrote down their memories, some hid them in their tears.
sometimes it flowed with the music, sometimes it imprinted itself in coffee mugs.
sometimes it could be captured, but mostly in the wind it flew.

there were ways to hide it, ways to confide in it,
no matter how loud the noises were, she could silence them in her head.
or were they deaf?
no matter how loud it went, they could only hear the parts they wanted to know.

they were only listening to the world outside, smile
at who she had become.
only to know that the smile
bore a zillion scars underneath.

After a point, you stop hoping to expect that they'll ever understand. Didn't Conrad tell you already that they all live in their own hell, only to know what they wish to know?


  1. It's true that people only see what they want... they do have their own issues... it's sad though, I think if we shared it more and really listened, it might help us even more... who knows xox

  2. Yeah. maybe we shud stop expecting that they'll ever understand. Yes, we're all living in our own heavens and hells. Putting multiple masks for the outside world. Yet, the scars beneath the smiles will help us to grow. grow wiser. bigger. May be its just about us within. And may be some ppl around do understand, jus don't/can't express.

    ...Because if gravity knows to pull us down, as humans we are mightier. For we know how to pick us up.

  3. The ending though.

  4. I can usually see the scars behind a smile...but to me, it makes both the scars AND the smile more beautiful...
