There, look closely behind, the smile
Tightly held at the corners, the mouth
Where a gleeful self hug sits, the repose
Keeping watch to benefit only, the struggle
Anticipation shadowing patience, the turmoil
Continues undiscovered in misery, the companion
Silent membership to undisclosed power, the secret
Desiring a place of acceptance too improbable, the damage
Born of intention then carefully nurtured, the deceit
Flowing effortlessly a hypnotized daze, the confusion
Always unaware of truth’s clarity to rescue, the innocent
Emboldened by experience with possibility, the hope
Challenging guile always moving there, beneath, the surface
