A little more you

There is a world you hide
Beneath that skin of yours
A world that nobody notices
Where the words are lighter
And heart beat is calmer
A world which is an abstract
Mix of sorrows and joys
All woven together perfectly
Making it more real than you
The face for the appearance
The smile for the audience
The words perfectly timed
An actor’s perfected act
You perform stunningly on
Stage for the world to watch
But it’s when you are alone
In voids and spaces of time
The unsure you visibly comes
Out when nobody watches
That part of you lurking in
Shadows for you to relax
A little more you, real you
Making you more human

  1. Perfectly said …no one is an open book…you hide certain part of your soul behind a veil and that part speak to you when you are alone and come up in poetry like these 🙂 you have bared a brtual truth of humans 🙂


  2. If we only really knew how many things people hide from view. Wouldn’t it be something if we could see the hidden feelings behind the faces of angry people, bullies, people who are driven to hate? It would be interesting for you to write that side as well.


  3. Hey Barrira,

    I hope you are well. Whenever I come online on WordPress, I still want to check your blog if you have re-emerged. I really really hope you are okay.

    I miss your Charles Bukowski and Sylvia Plath references.

    Lots of love and best wishes your way,
