Whats Lying Underneath

December 20, 2008
By Edith-Ismene Nicolaou-Griffin, Athens, ZZ

Your skeleton fingers slide through mine,
words aren't necessary
lets pretend we're blind.
Let your hands tell me what is on your mind.
Dig underneath my skin,
and what you will find,
is love far beyond the human sense.
No thoughts can express
the emotion that is about to explode.

Every piece of me is going to break apart,
every lie will be exposed,
every false assumption
For neither your hands, or eyes or thoughts could conceive,
the true bits of love lying underneath,
waiting to be found.

But my skin still covers them all around.


The author's comments:
This is a poem i originally was planning in making into a sonnet.
Its about not being able to express your love to someone for any reason.
I myself am not good at saying i love you, i let people assume it or i try to show it in other ways, so this poem was very personal.
I hope other people see a part of themselves in it as well.
