You See Me...

 You see me
 Behind the veils
 Of multiple masks
 Layer upon layer
 Built upon expectations
 And caricatured roles
 And yet you
 See me

Heart Whisperer

Gentle caresses
Supportive words
And calming voice
Patience and compassion
Toward a heart
Afraid to believe
Afraid to trust
Once a proud
And romantic soul
Broken and Battered
A dreamer
Jaded and scarred
Now skittish and scared
Guarded defenses up
A soft step
And gentle pace
Gingerly taken
The dance begins
A gentle hand                                                                                                  
And kind heart
Soothing a ravaged soul
Healing balm
On untended wounds
Promise the rebirth
Of a wounded spirit
To run
To fly
To soar
To be free…
