in the face

there are tears
waiting to surface

pores looking for oil

pimples ready to show
their ugly heads

hair about to grow

lines hoping to crease
(they want you to keep living)

and there is a tiny breath
waiting to be released
from a sensual mouth

Great build up of tension here -- well done

I agree. I really love the way the rhythm builds from stanza to stanza. Another good one!!
