An Expression Of Misery

By Damien Knight

He loved her smile
She frowned so much
He tried to make her laugh
She’d only sigh

He knew she was ‘broken’
That she could not feel joy
He stayed by her side
even when she begged

“Find someone happy
someone who laughs.”
He stayed knowing, understanding
She wasn’t just going to smile

“A depression is no reason
to leave my beloved.”
A smile, maybe she didn’t
need saved at all

still at least misery
did not need to be alone
