Behind the Veil

small__2788224265A Charm invests a face

Imperfectly beheld — 

The Lady dare not lift her Veil

For fear it be dispelled — 

But peers beyond her mesh — 

And wishes — and denies —

Lest Interview — annul a want

That Image — satisfies — 

~ Emily Dickinson

 

Shame rises and flaps Her tattered wings; I am not brave enough today to venture into this portal … maybe tomorrow Shame will be in Her nest.
