My Smile


Where is my smile?
The beautiful ray of sunshine that
lit up my face more than once in a
while.
The unique twist of muscles that
broadened my lips and exposed
my teeth
Accompanied by the faint blush in
my cheeks
And the magnificent twinkle in my
eyes.
Where is my Smile?
That spontaneous flash of light
Ever so bright no matter how slight.
That expression of joy
only seen on a child with a new
toy.
The out pouring of what was
within.
The love and excitement; it could
be seen.
Where is my smile?
I havent seen it in a while.
Just a gloom that lingers
and eyes that seem ready to break
into tears.
Where is my Smile?
I would like to have it back now.

    I Found Your Smile
    There is a smile from heaven
    well high above your head;
    if you'd only compromise your self
    To looking up instead.
    Like that sign in bright red
    telling me the poems I've read.
    Only one.
    That's all I need.
    To successfully
    Proceed.
    It's okay to cry a while;
    One should never force a smile.
    Weep as willows weep with child;
    Weep as Amazons and Niles.
    Like my pen, it weeps with styles,
    Under smoggy Land of Angels;
    And, for me, my City weeps.
    Her tear-duct aqueduct
    Now dry for miles,
    For all the pretty girls
    Need smiles.

    Dear Christine,
    It is regretful that so many odd situations really steal away our true happiness. Nicely done.
    Thanks! (Report) Reply

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
