Behind the Words

We hide behind words
Our souls longing to be bare
A safe covering?

Jealousy and love
Hate, passion, and sheer madness
Who is being fooled?

Words are transparent
Naked emotions are seen
Your heart is showing….

    Thank you for this post, Mr Seal. I apologize for the late reply. I'm glad I haven't been able to fool you for what is better than the naked truth.

    Eileen, I read your comments to Richard and I say never let anyone stifle you in any way. This poem is riveting to the soul. You are such an inspiration and I see why Demtrios was inspired to write his eloquent poem

    Yes, Charmaine. I agree with you wholeheartedly....Hope your weekend is turning out great. My brother and family came back from Canada (Kelowna) yesterday, and I had them over for lunch and supper. It was wonderful! I'm very close to my brother....Today we celebrate my mother-in-law"s birthday. Take care.....HUGS

    I've been censured for being too transparent, Richard...Often people tell me that I need to be more....veiled. That's just who I am....I'm struggling to learn to tone down the volume of my emotions! I WILL learn. It's DO or DIE! Thanks for visiting! Always a pleasure....
