Behind A Smile - Poem by indira babbellapati

How attractive
How bright
This smile can be

How it lightens
Your burden when
You chance upon it!

Behind the brightness
Behind the lightness
Behind the attraction
? ? ? ? ? ? ? ?

Most times
Behind the warm
And pleasant smile,
Hides an invisible hurt

    A smile needs to be answered with a smile. Maybe the hurt's behind the answering smile. Who knows? (Report) Reply

    This poem is wonderful in the beauty of a light happy mood, the attractiveness of a bright sunny smile, until the turn revealing the deep hurt hidden deep behind the happy smiling exterior. Wonderfully written. (Report) Reply
