Skin Deep

Stilled moments
Drafted wishes
Late afternoon
In a forgotten hiatus
It is only skin deep

Vestigies of an old promise
Calling on a glad heart
Didn’t know if it was for real
Gathering lamentations confirms
It is only skin deep

Singled out longings
Deftly proclaim this errand
Briefly, reality carouses
Lies that donated a future
It is only skin deep
