Favorite Quote:
"Ye hae your MEG, your dearest part,
And I my darling JEAN!
It warms me, it charms me,
To mention but her name:
It heats me, it beets me,
and sets me a' on flame!" Epistle to Davie, A Brother Poet by Robert Burns

She wears a smile;
She's alright.
The mask painted,
Conversation takes flight.

Everything's fine
As far as he knows
Catching up,
It's the way it goes.

Water glistens
Sliding down her cheek
Worry heightens
She now appears weak.

Trying so hard,
She wants him to be happy,
But it's not working
It's turning sappy.

He wants to help
But she's not having it.
Her mask is cracking,
And all he can do is sit.

It's something I wrote when debating talking to someone because I didn't know how I'd react. =)
