close my eyes
dare to breathe
sense some peace
feel her smile
in mind's eye
friend I know
Frilly socks and mismatched skirts
ladder up your lips' edges.
Dry muffled arms charm and hurt
my legs on your window legde.
My knees have ten cuts –
not sure I can keep my eyes shut.
My mind aches alone without a pillow.
And so may I borrow your chest?
My heart needs a rest.
You're rare enough to make me smile,
though I haven't seen you in a while.
I can't forget that fairyland...
So when will you come and hold my hand?
. . .
I saw perfection in your smile...
I believed in you as my safe harbour!
Disarmed by your daring glance...
I neglected myself over you!
What a blind, masochist heart of mine!
Now that I am back to Earth…
I no longer recognize you!
Why did you have to be so shallow?!
. . .
i remember seeing you one particular night
you were working diligently on something for those you love
although your drive for what you were doing was admirable,
i also noticed how under that light, you looked so captivating
i could see the passion in your eyes,
the pride in your alluring smile,
the joy written all over your face,
and the love you had for everything you did
under that violet lighting, you were the only one i saw
you shined so brightly as you always do
but baby, you looked so ethereal that night
i wish i could tell you that
A smile may be
Just everyday thing
Like brushing your teeth.
I mean, brushing your teeth isn't amazing- or- mentioned often-
"An action someone does when is pleased or glad."
Lips stretch. Breath seeps through your teeth. Whites of your teeth beam. Your eyes brighten. Some dimples may form. And your heart relaxes.
It sometimes may be fake
To cover a horrible incident
Or to lie
But you can know it's a real smile.
Stare into their eyes.
You'll see that beautiful spark of joy.
What's the most beautiful thing on earth?
Mona Lisa? A speck of flower? Your beloved ones? The autumn sky? Rare diamond? Money?
It's your smile.....
And I love it....
