My Face

The face is more
…..than just a face
or place
to hide a storm within.

It’s tenuous breadth
……..lives from birth
to pain,
and back again,
in less than a child’s first breath

It holds the knowledge
………God hides from the world
for it is stained
and longs for
the solitude of love…
And everlasting.

But there is no love
………Without loss
and only the face remains.
