With cold hands and a numb mind

I walked to unwind.


Dull red and brilliant blue

Were the colours that came through..

From bars and her shiny eyes.


She glanced at me cold as ice

Then went amiss

Into the shadows of the night.


Like a stray I drifted away

Into the coldness of her familiar sight.


Eyes of a Stranger

Day 64

Those wide eager eyes,

Relentlessly peering into mine,

Tirelessly seeking for answers,

From the depths of my soul.

I look warily

Not giving away so easily

There’s uncertainty and reluctance

So to hide the brimming emotions

I blink and look away.
