The Reflection

Standard

Grey and gloomy
Damp and stuffy
Car horns and puddles
Odour and dazzles
The kid dropped his paper plane
He bent down and saw it upside down
The same city
But a different sky
The same cars and marching people
But with lighter spirits
He saw it
In opposite
The child
We all missed

The Grey-eyed Lady

Standard

She never saw
Never at all
The breathtaking stars and rainbow caught in her hair
Her very long, always flying hair
She never realised
Never ever did
The lines and spots left by winds on her face
Her grey eyes focused ahead all the time

The Characters

Standard

Some are journeys
Some are destinations
People appear
People leave
Always at the right time
Always for good reasons
They might be different
They all bring lessons

The Strange

Standard

She didn’t say a word
Snaps
Disdain
She didn’t utter a sound
Objections
Rejections
She just stood in silence
Insults
Abuse
She never said a thing
Numb
Mute
