To read the face
Of one whose feelings show…
Brings empathy or joy,
When taking time,
Their heart to know.

The face of one
Whose grieving heart displays…
Loss shows itself through tears,
Deep anguish shows,
Confusion reigns.

To read the face
Of one whose grief spills out…
Full purging of the soul,
No holding back,
Lets sadness out.

The face of one
Whose fear is clearly seen,
Who speaks with trembling lips,
Dark shock-filled eyes -
A soul demeaned.

To read the face
Of one whose pain conveys…
Degraded, victimized,
A shaken one -
Such sad displays.

The face of one
Whose caring, tender eyes,
Exuding empathy,
Shows kindness true -
Deep love comprise.

To read the face
Of one whose tenderness,
Authentic, genuine…
Whose care mere words
Cannot express.

The face of one
Whose smile lights your heart…
Pink, glowing cheeks,
Bright dancing eyes -
Joy leaves its mark.

To read the face
Of one whose happiness
Could never be contained,
But shines right through,
Your soul to bless.

To read the face
Of one whose feelings show...
Brings empathy or joy,
When taking time,
Their heart to know.

This is wonderful! Great rhyme scheme and metrical structure, and a unique, creative "take" on the topic. Very, very nice.

Nice job! Kudos! I like your work.

Yes, so nicely done! Reading the 'faces' of others hearts is a skill my mother had that I continually strive to achieve. You've described this art in your artful poem. Thank you!

Wow - reading faces - love this take on the topic! How different our relationships could be if we'd all take this seriously - let our hearts be known and strive to know others deeply! I found this inspiring and affirming (at a time when I'm struggling to evaluate my interaction with certain people). :-)
