Whats Behind a Smile
She broke my heart instantly
She made me stare reverently
Her smile was enigmatically
Serene yet sad, so strange to see
Not a word did she speak to me
No attention did she seek from me
She just sat there smiling quietly
And her smile just kept on haunting me
What's Behind a Smile?
When I stood up she turned her head
Once more that smile filled me with dread
Had she understood anything I’d said?
Ethereal beauty, were you alive or dead?
As I stepped down from the train
I turned and looked. My chest in pain.
The shock at seeing her again
Smiling at me through the window pane
I walked away - my nerves drawn tight
As the train sped off in the station’s light
I stared again - I had no fight
She caught my eye and smiled outright!
Time’s now passed; still clear I see
Her short blonde hair bobbing so gently
Her bright blue eyes smiling benignly
Piercing straight through my soul to me.
