lacklustre

Standard
i like it when
the lustre wears off
when something becomes
less appealing 
it's revealing 
it tells true feelings
who or what is standing
still unabashedly loving
affections continuing
despite the diminishing 
where lies the loyalty
unaffected by less popularity
unfettered by opinions
unwavering & persevering 
holding on though hurting 
non-flashy & dirty
uglier perhaps
but still found worthy 
better somehow 
through life's beatings 
stronger somehow 
after bleeding
scars that end up beauty
faithful & more truly
in love with the aging
deeper character 
found in fading 
hands still left holding 
onto what's worth keeping 
after the lustre wears off

Window Soul

Standard

If you’d

Slowly let me

Bring you ’round,

You will

Smile again.

Perhaps you faded

For awhile,

But you will

Shine ahead.

There’s a window

In every soul;

We each exchange

A closer view.

Though you’ve struggled

And it’s turned cold,

Warmth will return as

Sun filters through.

Pick up your feet.

Chin up too.

Look into my eyes.

Remember me?

I still love you.
