Misleading Photographs

In the picture taken not so long ago,

You, looking in, would see my face lit up with a smile,

A pair of dancing and happy eyes

Delight drawn over my features

But, as I look at myself, I can say that it is not so

I see tears rimming around the eyes that you called joyous 

I see my lips' corners pulling down

I know how I felt

First glances may be deceiving

Especially at just a glance.

The End
