And I Shall Share Your Face - Poem by Mark R Slaughter

I study your art
Of eye,
Nose,
Line of neck,
Lips across the mouth,
Delineating psyche;

Balance in the clavicle
Augments, symmetrizes
Beauty in the surface of the skin.

Shy stance atop
Reluctant waist
Partners with a reticence;
Small of back betrays potential,
Elegance along the leg, disguised
Lest attraction daunts -
Of this, I see -
Believe -
In me:

To build upon
Relies upon the will
To persevere!
And as your glass
I'll share your face -
Inside I'm always here
To crush the pill
Of nagging pain -
In song for you ‘tis my refrain:

Relationships are gems.

Reflect upon
Reflective thoughts -
Let's mull across a Pinot
In a metaphorical bar -
In me for you, an open door -
In brain, I'm never far -

We'll stay the beast
Of deeper fears -
The play of bête noire
That plots the threat
Of brimming tears.

Yours -
Is in your house,
Yearning bed,
The solo mind;

We'll kill the dread;
You'll up and find
A match for life;

You'll have the calm
Your whole deserves -
Mind,
Body -
Slender curves.
