Behind the Smile~ (100 Word Song)

The 100 Word Song Challenge asks you to write 100 words (no more, no less) in whatever genre, or fashion you are inspired to write in, using the song of the week to get you there. 


 This week's 100 Word Song challenge inspiration is The Black Crows "She Talks to Angels" chosen for Lance and Leeroy by k~ (that's me!)

Here's my 100:

Behind the Smile~

Words bled out across the pages
of an unforgotten past
past frayed edges of heaven's gate
where butterflies and angels wait
and it's never too late.

she'll smile, so you can't see her
it's part of a greater plan
not that you'd understand
but you think you can.

Painted message on the mirror
"make this day a better day"
doesn't matter how you get there
Just as long as you stay
until that day
when worn out pages
become kindling for a fire
bet you didn't know
but you think you know

[Chorus repeat]
…she'll smile so you can't see her


  1. I love the flurry of songwriting and poetry happening around #100wordsong!

  2. I'm jealous. I can't write poetry. This was beautiful. I'd love to hear it set to music

    1. Thank you Carrie. I bet you can write poetry, if you really want to, you do have a way with words :-)

  3. Gorgeous! This is how to write a poem.

  4. Now, all you have to do is to give this the melody it deserves. :-)

  5. country seems apropos.

    1. Country hmmmm... Well that's one I had not considered for this tune, but I will be now:-) Thanks Imelda.
