A Smile

Do I dare to say those things that are unspoken?
Do I expose my heart to where it has been broken?
Am I accepted or rejected...a smile.
I do not claim to be humble or wise. 
Only human with a desire to be accepted.
For I am vulnerable without my disguise.
My disguise will keep me protected.
In my hours with  lonely smiles of desires.
My endless search remains undetected.
No room for compromise.
Honesty endures,  
Acceptance secures.
Every challenge it sees, 
Must be met with integrity. 
Sincerity and trust are traits that are a must.
This shall foresee the future meant for me.
Can he openly see?
Does he know the feelings inside of me?
How do I express these feelings?
Can I smile them in a way for only he
Will understand....
Do I dare take that chance?
He looks to her, beauty is in the mind.
In my mind see the beauty.
Does she know how beautiful her mind is?
Is she mindful of how beautiful she is?
He is flowing with words of beauty.
His thoughts are embraced with love.
She is reminded of her beauty.
His charming beauty shines down upon her.
Can your smile make me smile?
I can see your smiling face in my mind.
Your eyes are smiling too.
When you look into my eyes, do you feel as I do? 
Do you see what I see? Is it real? 
Or Is it just an imagination?
Are you smiling right now? I
Because your smile makes me smile.
