Smiles

To be happy

Is to feel

Nothing below

A smile;

Just for a little while.

For happiness

Needs devastation

To exist and to feel

Like something,

Anything at all.

Because all and everything

Is all I need –

And I need you.

For a moment,

You.

And when I can’t have you

I need you more

And more

And more;

And I’ll keep saying it

Until my words soak up

the darkness between stars.

For you make me

Happy-sad

And stretched out and strange

With each wordless moment

You spend

Waiting

For me to make you happy

Again;

To push your cheeks

Into a reddish blush

And leave you

with everything

Above a smile.
