Obviously artificial but still very much convincing.
Convincing of hope and happiness plus pleasant dreams in between.
I looked at it for a second and it was warming to my heart.
There was a heavenly quality to it
The way your lips curled at the edges
Taking my momentary fantasies and tangling with them.
I noticed the smile even though I had no intention of looking at you.
Not that you weren’t pleasant to look at.
I know you’re thinking that even if I found you unattractive
I wouldn’t mention it
But as fate would have it you’re just beautifully made.
I noticed the smile and I left it there
I didn’t have the right words
I didn’t even have the right thoughts
So now every time it passes through my memory
I just stop and stare.
