Breaths for Smiling

October 3, 2010
Take a deep breath and smile.

For a simple moment
Everything was just great,
Your laughs, flirts, hugs and kisses
Was what I looked forward to.

Take a deep breath and smile.

I wish you would've told me
Everything I'd done wrong,
Maybe then I could've salvaged
Everything we ever had.

Take a deep breath and smile.

I caught a glimpse of what was and could've been
Everything shifts into balance.
Bitterly broken by you,
Successfully repaired by hope.

Breathe, Smile.

The repetivity is really affective.

I found myself falling more and more in love with this poem as I read on. 

You're sort of saying... paint on a smile? And how heartbreak breaks the "perfect balance." 

Three words: I feel you.
