Vested Interests

In the mirth of others
His sorrows, magnified
So with smiles he lies
Hiding the pain inside

With clever deceptions
And charm, his weapons
He now seeks vengeance
For some peace of mind

Artful dodger who asks
Shows, but never tells
Emotions he can’t face
For whom he truly blames

I wrote this poem and the poem “Patrick Jane” as a tribute to the TV show The Mentalist and its main character, Patrick Jane.
