Smile and Nod

Smile and Nod
Regina Puckett

An inward scream that no one heard
I cussed the world without saying a word
Inside of me, trying to bubble its way out
Is a long screech, piercing shriek and loud shout
But the odds are, I’ll keep it all here inside
Because once a scream is released, you can no longer hide
So I’ll stand here doing my best to just smile and nod
And continue to be the world’s most convincing fraud
