You Too Own One
Expressions of the face captivate emotions.
Comfortably disguised in detailed confessions, describing feelings
of insecurity, resentment or depression.
They Fascinate with stories of growth and maturity,
contamination or purity.
The indiscretion of obscene gestures in the eyes,
lies shaking loose with every blink.
Every wink, every smile is contrary to popular belief.
Relief is worn on the shoulders
and pain is in every step followed by regret.
Tears of hurt, anger or joy confuse strangers as they walk past
wearing a mask of their own.
Trying hard to conceal what is shown and so easily revealed.
