"Carebear"   4 - 16 - 09

if i thought Teddy knew it all

i'd talk until stuffing thin

of answers and release of anxiety

i stare into a stare

of pairs and wannabes

there is a place to bide

though he's only of a fairer

omnivore of hugs and kisses

he fights fidgeting to a calm

a bear of great care

warming with a stare

eyes watching eyes hide

flinch, snicker or dissent

this 'nova neva did tell

lips affixed by sunken-silk

a deftly sealed vault

with eyes that shine

the diamonds of my sealed tears...
