Veil.

Veil.

A Poem by Aehr

She wore her brokenness like antique jewellery,
Like something fragile and old, too precious to lose.
Like rubies burning - a thousand souls churning,
Guised as a common glass stone, painted red.
She hid the passion of her wrath under smiles,
Under peaceful yet firm movements, under a blurry veil
Of plainness.
She wore her brokenness like antique jewellery,
With flames of rage dancing underneath -
Waltzing to the dark, bitter tunes of hungry revenge.

rhea...this is really good
some have veils of misrery and some of some other attribute their life pass through...the poem has a veil of strength...

I think we all do this to a degree. We all wear veils of some sort. I love the way you've fleshed out the idea with graceful-sounding imagery & much originality. I especially love the first 2 lines, becuz we've all known those people wearing their hearts on their sleeve & you painted an amazingly accurate & fresh word picture.

Amazing story told in the poetry. I like the veil. Mystery is wonderful. I like the poem. Felt a secret being whispered to me. I like the honest tone leading to the strong and sad ending. Thank you Rhea for sharing the excellent poetry.
