Why He Beams

Pallid and forlorn,
my heart broke for her.
Never saw such gloom,
but somehow I knew
she shone from within...

She buried that,
feeling dry...gray-
a crumbled mask 
made out of dust.

I asked her
one cold night,
“Do you weep?”

“My tears
    fill up

vowed to
kiss her
every night,
let her feel
she was loved...

And oh! How much
love she can give!
She's still shy, hides
from time to time,
but her smiles break free...
(One can't trap light's glow)

Her warmth makes me beam,
reveled eclipses.

Moon dust becomes blush.

    Very lovely Hexaverse my dear Nikko. I feel like I'm reading a riddle and I'm tring to guess for the right answer! Hmmm, don't make me think Nikko! A winning piece! I have not been following any contest lately. Busy kasi. I am expecting a dear friend to come visit me in Seattle. Love Dalila

    Nikko, you did Superbly with this entry. MY, and you told me you just didn't know. Well, it's awesome. What less would I expect of you!!! I posted my silly one. Wish I knew how to do outstanding free verse!!!

    How sweet of your man to offer to kiss you every night so you know how much you are loved. Like the way you made "dust" from the mask. Very cool, Nikko. Wishing you success in Catie's contest. Love, Carolyn

    Hullo again. nikko, do we have to break apart our entries into 5 separate stanza per hexaverse? Catie's hexaverses are all broken apart just like the example given in the poetic forms section, here on the Soup. I originally had my entry written that way, but incorporated my own formatting. Now, I am beginning to wonder if this will be held against me? I noticed right away that you also joined together some of the stanzas that are technically supposed to be separated.

    I don't think the line breaks are required, but they do make it easier to write with the correct syllable count. You did great!
