Treasure Island

prasanna kumari


The lost smile


The lost smile

a magic smile as a reverie
Oh! a life full of revelry

a welcome smile unsaid
leading all my way to bed

smile a seductive one
absorb me to be won

your smile tickling my cheeks
ah! raise me into the highest peaks

my hidden smile weaving silence
without sense, wait for your presence

a smile totally forgotten
drowns us all in pricking pain

a tear-laden smile on the face
speaks volumes beyond words

smile whispering colors
full of blushing pleasures

a vanishing smile with heaviness
light leaving for darkness

and me and me wandering awhile
in search of my lost smile
