Unknown Sadness

Seared by drops of tears
Filled with pain and agony.
The heart still beats
The rhythm of life’s song,
But the stomach clenches
Acid squeezed to a burn.
Internal chemical warfare.
Your appearance marks
An outer transformation
To false happiness and smiles,
Joy acted out perfectly.
How could I explain
That I do not know the reason
For the debilitating sadness
That twists and wrings me out?
