Sun stricken

Sun stricken

A Poem by _mal

In that moment it is felt

It is spoken

Is it true? Less true?
For being sullied by words that cannot cover
The depth of feeling
Clicking past behind those eyes
More true for the attempt?
Feelings flicker ticking
Through the angles of your smile
Degrees of vulnerability-
Shut down. Dull brown
Early evening Only words

sometimes we are vulnerable to the words we see on a screen, but moreso we are vulnerable to the eyes behind the words---nothing like face to face contact to not only hear, but also see the truth of the emotion.

~ it's an overwhelming piece of poetry... extremely consuming too... it reminds me of how much i struggle to write... and how i look at my words... and sink because i know that somehow no matter how hard i try... i can't quite express my own feelings... and a kind of weakness engulfs me... ~ you took me on quite a journey...
