Looking Back (a rewrite)

Looking Back

Words drove nails inside

Eyes smiled a frown from your truth

A reminder of country days in field of grey

A curl in need of straying around

The soft lines of your perfect neck

It would have been good of you to tell

To exhale the only breath of beauty

My smile might have worked

My tales could have leapt

The truth you revealed as you walked away

nearly lost to the crowd

As it swayed in its own majestic way
