Smile Not The Mask What Heart Wants - Poem by Nitin Suresh

Laughter caught in a warped bind
in jargon or metaphored silence
wishing there were stolen memories unwrapped
in a clumsy trail of silly moments.

There were delusion of sameness
a stop over for the brief appearance of joys.
Fleeting highs, gestures in masked disguises
Smiles at premium on contorted minds

Work of an artist on a giant mural
stoic expression of faces overlapping
engraved on templates of stoic mortars
yearning to find a meaning in an abstract

When do we forget to laugh and smile
Not a mask but a hearts inner reflect
Perhaps we yearn the most is the child
Within us and what time we lost
