If I set my Face like Stone,

would not I be- only- Alone?

Falter Not, Fail Not

Falter not, my eyes,

when I have your Face to see-

fail not, my Words,

to form an Apology.

How shadows smooth

harshness of face and skin,

while light reveals

imperfections, and illuminates

wildness therein.

Put on a brave face for the new day.

Try to forget about the past

and ignore what people will say,

even though words

become weapons

so easily,

and all of the pain

remains part of your history.

You put on a brave face

for the new day.

No ripples in the lake.
No mirrors, only white walls.
Something’s missing from the shelf…
A face like wax paper.
A name as common as air.
The line’s been drawn,
there’s no turning back.
