Frederick Frieseke. 1902-03c Woman before a Mirror oil on canvas

THE JEWELS

she crept

through all the motions

casting aside

her burning emotions

day after day and

night after night

fighting her cares

with all her might

she dressed

for the eyes of others

tho’ she’d clothe not at all

given her druthers

shimmering gown and sparkling jewels

all adorned

for the judging fools

if only they knew

what they could not see

for deep down inside

was a screaming banshee

but what could they know

of love so true

which to them

was only a torrid taboo

and so it was that she went

moment by moment

pretending

without a hint not even a glint

living a lie

lying to live

unable to forgive

her heart breaking

bleeding like a sieve

passion unbridled

soul on fire

all for a love

she n’er could acquire
