The things you can see in a beautiful face; one that can steal your heart.
Just what is that look I see on your face?
For certain, a warm look of beauty and grace; But it's also a mirror of a time and a place, that hurt you and scarred you and tested your faith.
That look of uncertainty, of mistrust and pain, overshadows loves cleansing midsummer rain. Not all storms bring lightning, thunder and hail; Let loose your torment and allow the sun to prevail.
Be dashing, daring, brazen and bold, or you'll never find what the future may hold.
One thing's for certain as you peep 'round that door, until you kick it wide open and throw your heart on the floor; no one can hurt it, love it or steal it, nor can anyone begin to heal it.
I see some sadness when I look in your eyes, but also desire, it's just neatly disguised.
Your beauty overwhelms me, as does your pain; remember to stand in that midsummer rain.
Happiness awaits you, kick the door open, you'll see; loving arms you can run to; kick now, it's me.

Such a beautiful heartwarming poem! I love this!
|Reviewed by Gianetta Ellis
|Deeply touching and profoundly wise. These words seem born of great love and great understanding. Each of us has been on each side of this shadow and can, therefore, feel the emotions behind the thoughts. Especially touching when one considers it may have been written for a child. Very nice.|

|Such a beautiful write...full of encouragement and hope. I also find it very romantic, in the sense that it says what many women would like to hear.|

|Sounds kinda' like my husband, the marshmallow - toasted on the outside, but ooie gooie on the inside.
The person on the other side of the door - kick it open - it's me!
What a wonderful invitation to love,

|Plumb...Right on the mid wicket.
The last line says more than some may realise.
No-one has the right to own a mans heart.
Manhood is not cheap and not for sale, time to bring reality back...

|With that invitation, I must tell you, "I'll be over in five!" (just kidding) Although you've touched upon something we women yearn for.. protection, understanding, and strength. Fantastic write! Holly|

|Well, who could resist this bastion of both liberation and safe-keeping. Strong and perspicacious is the man who can admire both the beauty and the pain that every human face contains... and noble him who offers to come alongside with attempts to assuage and heal so that that beauty might be even more honed and revealed. I love the self-effacing strength in this write, Glen, that lays itself down on behalf of the object of its love and affection. Truly the heart and mind of a Knight revealed here. Bless you, Kate xx|
