Warrior
spirit
wounded child-heart
ageless
ancient soul

I gaze furtively
measuring
caressing
committing to memory
only to be caught
His eyes search
for the truth

Do they see
Everything?

The truth lies fallow:
Half-finished business fearful
of completion
mingles
with the promise of tomorrow

Wretched bliss.
