How Smiles Were Born"How Smiles Were Born"
By: Ulrich J Edelstein
Deep underneath the crystals lies beautiful gems of starlight.
The temptations to capture them are beyond imagining.
Only few have been able to reach into the jaws of the creature to possess these magnificent stones.
Underneath the blue swirls
And the reflection of moonlight's grace,
Are the pearls of time.
They have been sprung up onto those who are fortunate.
They have been formed to create a crescent moon of happiness.
If not taken care, they grow weary and decay.
They crackle and shatter
And no one admires them any longer.
It is important for them to be handled with gentleness.
For the future can be presented by gleaming smiles.
For all to admire, for all pearls to aspire to be.
That is why it's important to smile everyday and take care of your teeth.
Seeing Through Your Eyes"Seeing Through Your Eyes"
By: Ulrich J Edelstein
I wouldn't say I was afraid of looking someone in the eyes
When they spoke with their words.
But if I looked them there, I would be able to see into there crying souls.
I would see there pain, and that was a disturbing feeling that I had.
For that reason, I never gazed upon anyone's eyes before I met you.
I always would stare blankly at their lips,
But you were the only person I never wanted to part eyes from.
Your eyes had drawn me to you.
Not because they were beautiful, though they really were the most beautiful set I've ever seen.
But because, I saw that your soul was broken and torn.
I wanted to feel your pain,
To try to get an understanding of where and who you are.
I didn't mind that your eyes were shredding me apart.
Until, I could no longer gaze upon them.
And now someone else has you.
The images of them are burned into a faint memory, I want them, but I don't have you.
You caught me,
You took my breath the moment our eyes met.
