Underneath the Surface

I have a friend named Kenneth 🙂 and he requested for a poem about a strong woman in exchange for a song…its a day late from his request, but I’m a writer of my word thus this poem shall begin ….

Underneath the SURFACE

The sun rises upon us and I rise to her kiss.

She does not know there is something at miss

That something is the fact I know underneath her lips

The fact she will not tell me her heart rips.

Ripping apart due to daily life’s risks.

The sun goes up higher upon as we walk different paths.

Beneath her legs tasked for the day’s math

A pair of feet sore and still walking

Worn on shoes whose age made them talking.

Another fact she does not know that I know.

The sun sheds light on us to see the surface of earth

She sees hardships before she can enjoy mirth

I see her bravery and resilience in her tasks

She molds out works from skill yet she masks

Her true vulnerabilities because of those whom she loves

The sun sets and we meet at last


I embrace her to melt her armor fast

Life’s troubles are not worth her true loveliness

The world’s rules will not outshine her heart finest

I tell her this with my kiss

Underneath the surface of her kisses, shoes, and armor

A woman I’ll love for her fight to love me with all honor.
