Look Beyond - Poem by Robert Siney
Beyond the dead pan face,
Lies a heart that lacks pace,
A mind that longs to stimulate,
A smile that cannot compensate.
What you see is just pretense,
A mask, a shadow, to make amends,
Unintentional but certainly strong,
Too busy playing your own slow song.
Lost and confused without knowing why,
Easier to laugh than it is to cry,
Invisibility is reality today,
Out of the picture, out of the way.
The silence has never been so loud,
Self-inflicted, no fault of the crowd,
Oblivious minds but maybe that’s how,
It’s appreciated and accepted by him now.
Beneath the surface of the sea,
Sits an unbroken sensitivity,
Astride a lonely sense of dignity,
All these things you never knew about me.
