The Jailer of truth


Silence lurks, behind eyes wide in a smile
winking
Silence lurks behind the corners of turned up lips

Behind family when you hope it doesn't show
Behind assumed confidence, and artificial arrogance

Silence lurks in a dark abyss, endless
In a place, this place, this place
My heart

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Your hands lie open in the long fresh grass, --
The finger-points look through like rosy blooms:
Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms
