Gentle Hearts

written by: Lee Dunn


bring me no dark.
I am of good supply.
no painted smiles
or bogus bonhomie.
in visits past,
I have seen,
in your well meaning fakery,
knitted brows in unguarded moments.
no need to work that hard,
my dearest.
if you are in shadow,
or even if not,
just sit by me.
warm me.
say little.
I do know you.
we have history.
just touch.
only touch.
it may be that we two
could shine a light
of sorts,
in here.

Lee Dunn

Lee Dunn has been writing since the age of 18, but found that work got in the way for the ensuing 48 years. In his home town of Toronto, Ontario, Canada, he reveled in his independence at an early age, and spent as much time as he could exploring the city’s Arts scene. He was introduced to poetry and prose by the works of two literary giants, namely J.R.R. Tolkien and J.W. Lennon and thence fell in love with the written word. His work includes poetry, short fiction, and personal essays, and ranges in theme from the surreal to the horrific, nostalgic, and themes on the human condition. He has written columns for the Shelburne Free Press, and writes mainly on his personal blog at AreMyFeetOffTheGround.
