the worthwhile smile

don’t heartbreak me with
that smile, the one that
reminds me of the sticky smoothness
of glossy magazine pages.

don’t try to trick me with
the fake smile, the one you believe
will make your presence
worthwhile in a room
full of shallow words
tossed about in waves
of meaningless conversation.

don’t leave me with hesitation,
the hesitation you always seem
to take, you breathe in, keep
it all in, until we both break.
