Wizards and War Lords

His smile was fixed.

He had practised it down to perfection
Knew the ways the corners should tilt.
How high.
How wide.
When it should reach his eyes.

And oh!
He could make them shine
Sparkling in all directions.

That boy.

Whole and adoring.

Your unfaltering happiness
His consuming heart break.

He wanted you to forget.

Break off
In one clean sweep.

Walk away without turning back
Just leave him standing there

In solitary hurt.

And you couldn't even do that.
