"Perhaps..."
  

P'haps its the eyes -
looking out on
reality
and somehow
still
I see the 'faerie' within.

"Perhaps..."

Smiles are hard to come by
as self-held make-believe
unravels to the whims of others...
but then again
they hold their own
self-held make-beliefs as well...
unraveling.

I've kissed the sun
while in ice encrusted lands
and tasted the heart
beyond all belief...
and KNOWN there was more
and found there was less
but
still the roads beckon
and the eyes still see
and the heart still reaches
and the mind runs free
and the moments follow moments
though the pauses still persist...

and one may find another's dreams
and taste the nightmare's tears
and touch with tender callused tips
and live within the fear...

and whisper names
quietly
in the dark -
and hear the silence
return...

so many are we ones - you know
crowding all around
finding what we never knew -
ourselves just looking back.
