Geez 'Deer, if a little bump feels good, here y'ago...[bump]

If I whisper, will you listen?...
I would rather be silent and write, than speak loudly and be bound.

Truth can always be found in the eyes.  You just have to look deep. Beautiful well read verse.

If a dream touches us, it exists to us as anything else that touches us.

on the threshold of a dream

Donning a mask each morning
Wearing it carefully
Hiding my fears and longings
Protecting the real me.
Someone looks through the layers -
What's this? Can it be?
Complete and total acceptance
On a beloved face I see.

Well... I can wish, can't I? *G* This is great, Deer one!

'Someone who looked for pearls in oysters - diamonds in the coal'. It doesn't get any better than that when you have someone like that in your life! I have a new favorite poem of yours now, Balladeer! Fabulous!

It is I who is bowing to the master.
Truly a great poem

psst, 'Deer - when do we get down to that layer where your mother made you wear dresses?  And what about that layer involving the roaches?  hmmm???  I like the poem - I especially like this style of using complete sentences for most lines.

This one reflects your true deep passion. We (men)all have layers to hide, but it is a lot of fun to entertain with a laugh.

I agree with the last comment. If this is from your own feelings (and how do I know, I just got here!)  someone is underneath the layers and your skin. Enjoy

We wear our layers for the sacredness
of secrets and in fear of expose
which reveals a pearl of great price
that we swear is far too much to pay.

But there is something about onions
and how they makes one's senses burn,
so even that the toughest soul
will be reduced to tears in turn.

No weakling can withstand the scald
that the hidden heart will bear
in tenderness dawning morning bright
where resolve of facades disappear.


MSM, voices of the heart... stunning poetry!
