National Poetry Month

Smile–National Poetry Month Day 22

“what cannot be said
will be wept”–words Sappho wrote.
What of hurts, sorrow
that cannot be wept?

Will it be a silent scream,
from a mouth wide open?
Or a stifled whimper behind
tight-pressed lips?

Or a smile that doesn’t quite
meet eyes?
