the mi you don’t see…

the smile on my face
covers the pain my heart feels.

it masks the ache in my soul,
and covers a hole
that needs to be filled with love.

the glow you see in my eyes
is only the reflection i get from others.
still in them i see
the continuous need
also to be filled with love.

the hugs that i give
are simply to touch someone, anyone,
and feel the closeness i miss-
on days like this.
gosh, how i need filled with love.

the spark in my step
keeps mi from clinging to a pillow of tears.
as i’d rather stay in bed all day
and really fade away
to a dreamland –
where i’m finally filled with love.
