My first good poem...(from April, 2005) [Jun. 17th, 2006|12:42 am]
Once Upon a Time, We Faded Blue

Underneath
by Andy Leggett

There is a darker shame
Hidden behind this perfect smile --
Behind this perfect lie
There is a deeper sorrow.

Beneath this pallid frame
The truth belies this pretext you call a life --
All your feeble delusions dissipate
And leave you with no comforts in which to hide.

Your haunted eyes confess
What your happy mouth denies --
The knowledge of this dawning horror
Shows itself through the windows of your eyes.
