I saw your smile.
And I was jolted to the core.
The curve that lingered on your lips,
All these years I have been with you….
I took it for granted.
I boasted of owning that smile.
I prided myself on orchestrating it.
As we held each other close,
I stared at your smile.
And saw the pain that engraved it.
The aches I gifted to you
As I kept on losing myself in the glittery falsehood of the world.
My heart has never learnt how to spell Sorry…
Your everlasting smile left no space for that.
I find myself
At the mercy of your smile.
Smile for me once again,
Like that first day…
