General Poetry posted September 14, 2017

Not yet exceptional. When the exceptional rating is reached this is highlighted
The strongest, most put together are often weak and hurting


by simplyteresa

Hiding behind a pallet of minerals
Clad in Armani armor and red soled heals
Shoulders squared to take on the world
Greeting all with shuttered eyes

Pain and skill woven masterfully
Gray eyes reflect the ache in her soul
Silent tears she keeps privately
Whispered pleas prayed in the dark

Looking in the mirror for strength
A glimpse of a stranger she sees
Overcoming loss grips at her core
Lost is the woman she was meant to be
