Poetry

Here are some poems I've written.

Smiling (#2)

Her name unknown, unimportant.
One thing only -- smiling.
Not a smile -- smiling.
Not a thing, but an action.
More than just an action.
A reaction.
A reason for action.
A feeling.
A cause for feeling.
Yet so much more.
A beacon.
A beckon.
Enticing me, pulling me in.
Wanting to share in her secret.
Wanting to get closer.
Wanting to be close.
Wanting.
Needing.
Hoping.

Smiling (#1)

Smiling.
Laughing.
Dancing.
Old man becomes young.
Renewed energy, vigor.
A reason for living.
A reason to smile.
Always.
Constant.
Hopeful.
A desire to get closer.
To find the cause, the reason.
Does the smile cause happiness?
Or does happiness cause the smile?
Oroboros.
Life.
Death.
Does life cause death?
Or does death cause life?
