We Are We Were

A quick mention,

And an even less noticeable glance at the floor

Linoleum tiles.

It depends on who is asking I guess.

Sometimes I smile.

I used to smile a lot more.

Now when I smile, you see a lot fewer teeth.

I know, because I practiced in the mirror.

I had to practice how to all over again.

I’ve got to be more careful now

I figured it’s not worth doing things halfway,

So now I just try to laugh.

I had been doing things halfway for so long.

That it was time for a change

Now I only smile when I am remembering something

Something I used to have

You were a smile. But maybe all I had were illusions.

Because even that was questionable, you made sure of it.

And now, rather than crazy

I just have a great imagination.
