even though the heart
weeps

dear qualcosa--
This haiku could be also for last week's prompt, disguises.

if this poem is about your current state, I surely hope you find a place where you can weep and mourn with great openness. Disenfranchised grief takes much longer to heal...
sweetness on your journey--

I agree with Beth, a painfilled smile can be a disguise as well as a contradiction, a paradox. This is tender, yet direct.

A sad but often necessary determination.

Our culture voiced in three lines, very nice, I like it. I think we've all been there quite often.

Disguise, contradiction, inversion--and yet a teller of truth if we know how to look. Deb speaks for me--tender and direct. Thanks.

This is so amazingly succinct. It explains the vulnerability, the strength, the pain, and the resolve...

Wow, only a few words but it packs a powerful punch. A paradox, indeed...
