The side of my face

Gave you a wide berth

And I dropped my gaze

To drop you down to earth


The smile on your face

Revealed you too easily,

my faith fell like a stone

and I stole away quickly.


The tears on her face

Gave way to waves of joy.

Dried up and withering

I became again a little boy


The grin on my face

Gave nothing away of the hidden,

Fraught and badly drawn.

A silent picture of smitten
