Perfect Smile

Written by: Richard Lamoureux

I look upon her pretty mask
The expression so serene
What lies beneath that perfect smile?
Where has this woman been?

I look through the portals to her soul
Those lovely and haunted eyes
Despite her greatest effort
This part she cannot disguise

Once the mask is stripped away
Naked and vulnerable she stands
I take her gently in my arms
I make no harsh demands

Floodgates are opened
Her emotions set free
I witness the true beauty
She has gifted to me 

I look upon her pretty face
Expression so serene
Now she dawns a perfect smile
The most beautiful I've ever seen
