s(mile)

she stared
into my eyes
and
smiled
it was a smile
that all smiles
strive to attain
it was a sliver of sunshine
it curved
like the pommel
of a throwing axe
it curved
in a way
that fit perfectly
into the gaps of me
it curved
with a promise
of
blue skies
of
forever
irregardless
of
my somewhat
shakey
understanding
of the concept

she stared
into my eyes
and
she smiled
it crinkled
the corners
of her eyes
and
i was blinded
by the radiance
it was
like staring
into the eclipse
while
my eyes
are
like staring
into the abyss
they
both
are tainted
with promises
of forever
or
whatever

but she smiled
a
smile
just for me

  1. This is really sweet.. I smiled at the line about the smiling fitting into gaps but the whole thing was lovely.
