Poker Face



You left me feeling unwanted and undesirable! How could you take a beautiful soul and leave it hanging in the cold, without a hand to take hold? You don't know how to break out of this cold freezer burn feeling. You ever had that meat that sat in the freezer until someone notice it needs to be defrost and cooked. Whether it be baked, fried, broil, boiled, and or Pan seared until it got some attention you would never know if it's salvageable. To maintain a smile knowing how unpleasant you feel inside is a skill called the poker face. This life can take a toll on your mental if you let it but sometimes you can't control it. Try it out see what happens when you actually take the time to use your hands to caress, season and cook that meat with love and tender care.
