Harsh lines, fierce


Look beyond.
hidden deep.
An uncut diamond.
A slice of heaven.

Chip away the coal.
Love emerges shining.
Yours to keep forever.
I won’t allow this.

My heart I keep safe.
Many a time it broke.
The mask repels others,
serious, stern.

Eyes that observe silently.
Knowingly, understanding.
Rejection seen clearly.
Reflection of harsh lines.

A face that is serious.
Some would say stern.
External features define
harsh lines, fierce.
