A Poem by dovetailer

a lot to smile about


I Smile



my grin is not shallow

actually, it’s not a grin at all

but a soft, beaming, smile...

it betrays this fact...


...I love what I see...


even if all I saw was just what

is on the outside...

that would be enough

to inspire...

for you have beauty enough

to fill my dreams




I have seen inside the veil

that all the world now sees

and seen your heart exposed...

vulnerable to

the slightest prick

that would mar it...make it bleed...

...your heart is scarred...

not all have loved you as I do

they were


taking what they wanted for themselves

then leaving you to bleed...

weeping your pain

to the howling darkness


...fear not...I am here...


I hold your heart as if it is my own...

I will not leave you

as you sleep...

my shoulder has soaked up your tears...

in your peaceful slumber

I touch your cheek

with loving lips...

it is a wonder your wounds have not

diminished what you are

...made you distrust

every motive...good or bad

but here you lie


...the real you...


and...I love you all the more
