spew 2

unable to revel
just mimic smiles
nod and accept
gracious yet distant
person to person  
to persona
usually hidden
behind walls of space and time
shielding scenarios better left
as our needs misread
un-wanted signs as maybes  
perception alters to reality
grand passions fade to black
while spot lights shift
to simple words on unlined pages
comfort zones

This vividly reflects the powerful world of inner life which is as vast as the universe.
