One Poem by Alun Robert

Written in response to this month’s Special Challenge.

Contemplation in Front of a Marled Mirror

sits alone … pale
eyes glancing aside with sorrow
no tears or cries of hurt
just memories, precious dreams while
whispering solace ad infinitum

distraught by her self image
in the marled mirror of life’s trauma
at the front of a pink world
now out of focus
out of tune with her heart

will her lover return
on a white stallion or in a Ferrari for
to glide through the future
or now departed forever
a new beau hand in hand

but for the present, morose
nobody to talk with
no one to proffer comfort then
no point in proceeding
merely contemplation

while reciting ad infinitum
precious moments, memories with
no tears or cries of hurt
eyes glancing aside with sorrow
sits alone … pale
