Tainted smile

It’s all just for me,
My secret, my mystery,
My encryption, my eternity.
It lifts me up when I’ m down;
Something in which I’d love to drown.
Energy surges through my veins,
I’m floating over the clouds;
Yet I’m rooted to the ground.
I can see nothing:
Nothing other than your tainted smile.

On days I don’t see those pearly whites;
I realize why I find it tainted.
It reflects your heart
A painting yet to be painted,
A pain yet to be shared
A love too strong to understand.
Tainted with the fear of loss
Tainted with the pain of the ones you love.
I live to see it every day
And I will see it until I die
No matter what you say
We’ll be together
I promise I’ll always be there
To see your tainted smile.

They don't do creative writing in our school.... but we have scholarships for the same. If you get one you'll get trained.

Isn't that a van gogh painting?

Somehow I think that goes perfectly with the poem!

Well done!!
