Real Love Poem

By Greg Baer M.D.

November 24, 2014

You see a miracle
Hidden beneath skin and bone
Huddled under niceties and nuance
Swathed in blankets
of guilt shame and frustration
Suffocating under the weight
of expectation and obligation
from unsound sources
Trading for a brief pleasure gain
Smiling through the pain
Engaging with empty life forces
Running on 2 legs
as far as the eye can see
But not far enough away
to be lost forever
to those with time to believe
Peeking through a gap in the mask
Two shining pupils look out
"I’m in here" says the miracle
Louder than a whisper
Softer than a shout
Lighter than air
The secret's been let out
