Breathless

view-2417156_960_720

The window swung open

Not a breath of wind in the stale air

And golden tresses cascaded

Over ivory shoulders cold and bare

 

Her thoughts were deeply rooted

In the splash of blue of her faraway stare

And her heart stood there broken

Lost in a dream which was far from there

 

The crash of waves interrupted

Her lonely despairing thoughts

And her mind fought to refocus

On what the new day had brought

 

But at last her mental clarity

Betrayed her once more

As she stumbled and fell dead

Against the unconcerned floor

As an old woman, I wish to be young.”  ~M
