Your Smile, A Beautiful Lie!


You better off, not mine
I well off, not your buy
O Lord! Why cut them so fine
Two lips that sin, by and by
Your smile, a beautiful lie!

Estranged the world, to its creed
Such a sweet deceit, is thy
On promised patch, an evil seed
On solemn soul, a soothing sigh
Your smile, a beautiful lie!

Every face your mirror, cynosure you are
A cutie pie!  Or deaf magpie!
Who sells her songs, in empty bazaar!
Unspent your bliss, half-blushed, twice shy
Your smile, a beautiful lie!

And the question returns, to the same impasse
Ain’t it sublime artifice, in my mind’s eye?
A smiling lass, or a growing myth! Alas!
Eats my soul, your brutal bonsai
Your smile, a beautiful lie!
