Through the shiny

Childhood words still ring, captured deep
Now and again they seep,
resonate through years
But now encouragement shared
Able to struggle through veneers
laid thick one layer, another
Shiny poly protects and
we look great, but feel nothing
Grind down through pain
through tears and anger until
the real is touched
caressed, protected
Your smile opens my heart 
rids the shiny
...and slowly, imperceptibly, the specular layers wear through
to see blemishes real
No fear with trust
