A Smile That Brightens Me

Glassy eyed vixen.

I stare into thy eyes.

Sparkling like a wildfire;

Such feelings I can't deny.


Long black silky hair

Oh I did not dare touch.

But my thoughts are impure;

I never thought I'd think such.


That smile brightens me.

Just smile.  I'll be content.

Is this so?  It can't be

It's of you my mind has spent.


In moments of wine,

I see one face inside.

Why not her, why not she?

But instead a different life.
