My smile is like a neon light
Lighting up all around
And drowning out all else
Brilliance in person
It says, “I’m happy!”

Yours is like a candle flame
A single flicker in the darkness
Enveloped in a warm embrace of shadows
Gentleness personified
It says, “I make you happy.”

And you do.

    Oh I absolutely love the poem! I especially love how you speak about two different smiles and connect them together. So I may not have worded what I’m trying to say perfectly, but I am sure you know what I mean.

    Anyway, thanks for stopping by 🙂

    I was pretty sure I had read your blog as well, when Rohini spoke about you! It’s a shame I didn’t get to hear your poem. Do we get to hear this one at the next poetry slame?

    P.S. Loved your skirt.
