Smiling Girl - Poem by Souren Mondal
And she always greets everyone with a
Flashing her pearly white teeth;
She speaks in a sweet, melodious voice
Everyone thinks she is a happy-go-lucky
girl of seventeen,
with dark, deep eyes and silky smooth
hair and a permanent blush on her cheeks.
But inside she is like a ballerina with a
broken toe, in an opaque glass globe,
where charcoal snow falls and freezes her heart,
with an occasional acid rain that melts her bones.
But she always flashes her tender smile at everyone
And speaks in a voice that sounds like music.
No one knows what's inside her,
What broke her so bad,
that she cannot but always smile...
