Water trickling down her face
Foam trickling down her hands
Memories stuck in the minds
Of two former kinds.

She only ever did it for the smiles
For the most adorable smile
Of the special ones
She has ever met in months.

Those smiles brought smiles
And tears brought tears on the soul
To the point where it was one huge wound
Expanding, trying to devour the soul.

Life has hardened the soul
While the devour tried even harder
To get it all for itself
Leaving none to the lover.

Yet she wanted to see people smile
Even though she was in pain
But other smiles made her smile
And forget for a while.
