Personality - by Bob Atkinson

Personality
(c)2013 Bob Atkinson

saving quiet looks of inner depth
took his skills to a master's test
agonized over how without remorse
time would place his expertise against

those of similar or divergent artistic paths
some with talent, some with brashness
would this technique of impression last
or find unfavorable remembrance fast

would he be seen as little drama
sometimes caustic, sometimes appaling
sometimes finding intensity of heart within
sometimes flat with false facial chagrin

here in Mrs Henriot's spirit
thought he found his best lot's goal
she looks out pleading with large brown eyes
"Please Mr Renior capture my smile"

"Madame, if you will, let me decide
smiles be superficial against inner pride
wish to see your deepest soul's delight
bare your sensual nature via inner brightness"

judge, yourself, what Renior had
brought in vision in this pretty lass
right, wrong, or on false mission
yes, no, or smack in the middle

does her smile show shallow thoughts
depth of knowledge, inner faults
or, has he captured what we all seek
understanding a mind before it speaks
