Look at her, so easy to err,
Calm writ on face, no breach on surface,
Twinkle in the eye, silences that sigh,
Ghost of a smile, once in a while.
The benign unwavering, a tranquility unnerving,
The ready ear, the false cheer,
The patient nod, a quiet prod,
The private barricade, a public facade.
Concern for opinion, renders a minion,
Once bitten twice shy, grins... they belie,
So tough to explore, so easy to ignore,
Fear of betray, that's the dossier.
Story untold, a barrage behold,
A storm building, the anger splashing,
The emotions frothing,the tears stinging,
The remarks scathing, the lips? Smiling....
