Love Displayed

You may elucidate your deepest feelings,

For the one you hold dear, who makes you complete,

With a touch of the hand, a stroke of the face.

Every emotion that wells up inside you,

For the singular heart that matches your own,

May be displayed within a kiss, an embrace.

But what can never account for your esteem,

Rather only exemplify blackness of heart,

Is hand raised in fury or words meant to harm.




About John White

I've written off and on my entire life. It took years for me to finally take putting words together seriously. Now it's not, nor does it ever feel, like work. Writing daily has become habitual. No day is complete without words having appeared on the page.

  1. Teeth gnashed in temper,
    a hand pulled back to strike
    Things you want not to remember
    But haunt your sleep at nigh.
