Below the surface

Underneath the surface
skin deep
run emotions
you cannot put your finger on
love, rage,
hurt, anger,
frustration, happiness,
and hope
and so much else
we paint a smile on
to cover what we feel
thinking it best
not to give into our feelings
I can acknowledge
these to myself
knowing through them
my good and bad points
but without giving
with emotion
with all of me
how much am I giving
cannot be put into words
but a touch, breath soft
a genuine grin
open laughter
eyes dancing
can bring it to life
so well
and isn't that what living's all about
real living?
