  What is the difference
they both look the same,
  one is from pleasure
one is from pain.

  I feel a difference
can you not tell,
  guess it is good,
I fake it that well.

  I can survive the day
but I struggle at night,
  what will it take
for things to go right?

  I love the sunshine
but also the rain,
  just proves how fast
everything can change.

  I hope it will change
maybe benefit me,
  but if not then again
my fake smile you will see.

sometimes even in the fake smile there is a real one that is just behind the screen and you don't even know it.I really loved this poem.

gjam,
Well you know what they say "if you can't make it fake it."

Glad you are able to fake it.

Be well

What a nice poem!  
Fake smile... I can never deliver fake smiles even though sometimes it's really necessary  
Take Care!

Don't wanna dance if he can't be
Everything that I dream up
A man that understands real love"
