My Face is Pale Satin
Posted on October 20, 2009
My face is pale satin, my eyes hollow rocks
Hidden deep down inside, my smooth facade blocks
Emotion, hidden away from my face,
But neither from sorrow, nor from disgrace.
You send me feelings, I give nothing back
The emotion in my body’s hard to track
But if you look deeper, look through my curtain
You’ll find something surprising, of that I’m certain.
For deep down inside, past rocks blocking the way
Emotion lays weeping on an old silver tray
Never used, never wanted, under lock and key
Will you save my feelings, will you rescue me?
The real me is hidden, dragons hold it under
Instead of hearing my birdsong, you hear only thunder
But fend off the dragons, with sword and shield
And then my true feelings are mine to weild.
I thank you for your courage, and for your care
Now my true feelings are mine to wear
My face was pale satin, my eyes would never show
The true feeling inside me, with it’s warm silver glow.
