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
