The best game I lost

What’s behind the smile?
I am hiding at least ten secrets I won’t tell.
What’s behind the smile?
Ignorance is bliss, I guess.
What’s behind the smile?
I think I remembered an old joke from way back when.
What’s behind the smile?
Stop asking.
What’s behind the smile?
I won’t tell.
What’s behind the smile?
I am not telling you how I counted every spot on your face and made a constellation out of it. My stars in my universe.
What’s behind the smile?
I don’t think you’d want to know.
What’s behind the smile?
I don’t think you’d like knowing how much I have been trying to look away from your eyes.
What’s behind the smile?
You should never find out I probably won’t ever be able to see those eyes on anyone else ever again, or that maybe the next time I see a smile like yours, I will stop smiling. So, maybe I am smiling because somewhere, I am thanking God you’re okay. If God exists, he better listen to every word and every fantasy I am playing out in my head. It’s a dream now, but how far are dreams from the truth unless we try. Right? You needn’t know these things.

So, what is behind the smile?
I don’t think I have ever enjoyed losing to someone so much.
