You There

It’s in the way she moves,
Softly, firmly, quietly,
Like she doesn’t wish to be spotted.
Slipping through cracks,
And disappearing into the crowd.

It’s in the way she laughs,
So ordinary, so familiar,
Yet a contradiction to her eyes.

Her eyes, so profound-
Seemingly an abysmal nothingness,
Yet containing everything.
Everything that needs to be known about her.

    You conveyed the restraint of her unraveling emotions simply through body language. I looked into WP after two weeks and yours is the first blog I hit up. Because… this is what I was looking for.

    Zee – your poem is really good – feel cheesy saying that – but those are the words that came to my mind — I like the direct narrative – the eyes talk and all – but there is a beauty to be found between lines and thru the vibe of your poem -‘a human beauty with a bit of private joy…. hmm

      Wow, I’m humbled that my words reminded you of such a legendary classic song. I loved the lyrics. The tune kind of reminded me of “Hotel California” By The Eagles. Thanks for sharing Rob ❀
