POETRY: Just Beneath the Surface

“Just Beneath the Surface”

by Dean B. [circa 2000]

Just beneath the surface of her pleasant, winning smile,
Pompous and indignant, it’s been there quite a while,
Comforting, reliable, it keeps her in the dark,
At least a million reasons and subtle quirks remark:

“Sure it makes a lot of sense!” she’ll deal with it tomorrow,
Sadly now the curtain falls, why does this seem to sorrow,
A chapter ends, a twist of fate, what could be the purpose,
For most of us the painful truth lies just beneath the surface.
