A Smile With Agenda!

From where I sat,
It felt real
For a while

From where I stood,
It felt pure
Your smile

From where I thought.
It felt good
Your grin

From where I felt,
It was joy
Deep within

But as your smile held hidden agenda
Mine got sent back marked 'Return to sender'

    Sadness! Something I felt one two many times. Remember the greatest love you can find is you self.

    i smiled in this poem
    you did it nicely
    there is a bomb at the end of your poem
    that we did not expect to explode

    Most of the comments I read about your Agenda poem were too absurd to accept as much more than hoaxes. Poets are really crazy, and hold no hope for any agenda but saving themselves with psychiatry's aid.
