    I don't like this title, but couldn't think of anything. Anyway here goes.


    They say,
    That the eyes are the windows to the soul,
    Then tell me,
    Why is there a darkness that resides beneath your eyes?

    They say,
    That you can tell a man's intelligence by his hands,
    Then tell me,
    Why are yours scarred and broken?

    They say,
    That you can tell a man's wealth by his shoes,
    Then tell me,
    Why are yours worn and more than a season old?

    They say,
    That you can tell a man's strength by his shoulders,
    Then tell me,
    Why do you slouch to hide your broad back?

    They say,
    That you can tell a man's life by the laughter lines on his face,
    Then tell me,
    Why does your face not have a line upon it?

    They say,
    You can only tell a man's love by the way he kisses you,
    Then tell me,
    Why do you kiss me deeply, like you don't want to ever let me go?

    Rich - thanks for the reply always 'preciated

    They say you're broken,
    I say you're perfect,
    Baby, don't mend for no one,
    Because no one will be worth it.

    Nia - thank you, that is such a HUGE compliment coming from someone as talented as yourself. Thanks
