New poem...just wrote it today...Yay!
There's a building across the street
from my apartment complex.
I see a lady hanging her head
out of her two story window, I wonder
what she is thinking.
Below I see her beautiful flowers have survived
her marriage of truth and lies.
I wonder if she wants to know life's greatest
questions like I always have.
I think of how many women her husband had
cheated on her with and how many men
she has longed for to caress her.
When I look at the clouds I see the faces of
past persons like me, who have done every wrong
and looked past every right.
There's a little bird who sits on top of
my head and tells me its secrets and of all the places it has seen.
Walking into my house the
other day I looked over at her house,
I saw a for sale sign with big red letters
standing in her tiger lilies which were beginning
to wilt a shy.
Knocking on her door I stood there,
she answered, a ciggarette protruding from
her tiny red lips.
She stared at me a minute then said,
"who are you?"
Re: Number 1498
A nice poem. I like it very much, just as most of your works... this one reminded me of "To Kill A Mockingbird" somehow... lol
It has something really great in it... maybe the simplicity? The simple story you're telling here- just about a neighbour. But it's not as simple as it may seem- even in a simple happening like seing a neighbour looking out of the window can mean so much...
A really great poem Kelly! ^^ I'll be looking forward for the next one! ^^
Re: Number 1498
Aww thank you. I do try really hard when I write my poetry. The funny thing is though when I spend five minutes writing one poem and 2 days on another..the five minute one is better lol. ^-^
