smiles that slipped..... post no. 8

Footsteps, small and big
Smiles, wary and bright
Faces, happy and sad
Stress, ready to bite

Heart followed the face,
Mind followed the footsteps,
Smiles slipped mid way
And landed on to stress

Crumpled up along the way,
I saw a small sigh.
Someone trampled all over it
and it  became all stifled and dry

Go find those smiles,
Clenched between the teeth of stress,
Ask it to climb on to the faces
And sit, all bright and smug…..


  1. This is so so so so so sooooooooooooo cute. I can't find any other word for this. The emotion when you wrote it, may have been of stark difference, but this is super cute to me!

  2. Loved it loved it!
