Rusted Smile

by eezebard   Sep 21, 2009

Hearts in memory drawn before us
haste display their vesting style
Daydreams shed and plead ... restore us
dancing o'er a rusted smile
Chancing fancies may discover
heart-light cast where sins may dwell
Shadow-darkened skies recover
the isolation sought to quell
Sifting through those haunting traces
ringing round a fading light
Who might stop and trade us faces
invest a smile to warm the night
To the wise that rise above us
bend an ear to wishing well
See the dancers push and shove us
to the brink of living hell

    Thanks Kay ... I've been writing since 1979 and have posted some of my works on several forums across the internet ... have been published twice in Anthologies at "Passions in Poetry" Where you'll find me listed as "Rex Allen McCoy" ... perhaps I'll post more here in the near future

    Such a very unique style you have and I am quite shocked that no one has commented this write yet. Hoping you are not a fly by night thing on this site as I would love to read more.

    Take Care,
