Clowns.

Let us be clowns.
Tears behind the make up.
Smiles mask our frowns.
A jolly facade
For the deeply scarred.
Where is love now?
- out of bounds.
Only moonlight reflects
the saddest sounds.

Let us be clowns.
red noses and poses
In outlandish dress.
We find the crushed roses
when she couldn't care less
Laughter at sunrise,
Tears at sunset
Blue memories
My heart 
can never forget.
And time never  eases
my pain.
I'm the latest
basket case
 Insane
wearing a happy face.
After romance
does the rounds
leaving
dead men walking
Just  clowns..
