My Face

You never really saw my face,

I only reminded you

of wandering youth, the strength of hope

and the delightful kingdom of imagination

Your sight was your playground

as you seized upon the libertine,

gave into the desperate deception.

You fed your heart with flesh,

your mind wanting, dying, for lack of nourishment;

hoping to elude the pain

Only once did you hear my song,

was that enough to fill your hands

Soak your tongue seal, your fate?

If you were inclined to insecurity

would passion be enough to wash your wash your vacant heart,

would longing soothe the sandy crags of your wilted skin?

Forever now my delicate death

brings misty rains practical words

that speak not of doubt, but of unthinkable mirth,

of flowers and sunsets, of starless space and pitch black

Whisper

……..and see me now

About Richard
I have spent my entire life learning to be a better communicator in in all facets of my life. I have learned as much from my failures as I have from success; laughing, crying and loving along the way. After earning a B.S. in Communications I decided to share what I have learned while continuing my own personal growth. I believe that the better we are to each other, the richer our lives will become.
