You Have Exposed Me

Poem By Heather Z. Hanna

You have exposed me to myself.
You see in me what I seek.
You pronounce it just this and that.
Am I so ordinary?
Of course, I chose to share myself with you.
It could not be otherwise.
There is a safety there.
I am forthcoming with generalities
but keep my deepest self to me.
I do not like to share limelight
with my inner self.
I do not like pronouncements
that demean me.
It causes disintegration
of something I must keep.
I cannot afford to lose it,
That which is my core.

A Flower, A Friend

A flower colors our garden
With many rainbow hues,
Expressing our feelings
In Yellow, reds and blues.

A Voice

A voice in the dark.
A sound to be heard.
A vibration of tone.
A dark light of word.

Must I Face This Day?

Must I face this clear bright day?
With heavy Heart
and sorrowful soul?
The sunlight ebbs and flows

The Dogwood Tree

Through the dark green curtains
The snowbright dogwood floats
As a cloud of butterflies
Above the damp sunlit slope.

Inside A Sadness

I am down inside a sadness that won't leave me alone.
When I think of you and things that you've said
I manage a smile and it makes me free
For a moment, I fly

Silently Crying

Silently crying,
Flowing of tears,
Straining of Heart,
Pain in the mind,
