Where She Stands

A wildflower stands erect
Soaking in rays of radiance
As the bees and townsfolk buzz
And the wind sways in a slow dance 

Contentment is where she stands
Until she spots something missing
Among all the townsfolk talk
She was bound to start listening

Was in the clouds but now on land
Leans in to get a better view
A life involved with others
But she doesn't know what to do

Clueless but curious
Tries to start a conversation
In search of a smile
Doesn't find it in rejection

Caring but cautious
Hoping to look approachable
In search of a word
Doesn't happen when you're invisible

Confused and crushed
World doesn't make much sense
In search of a friend
Everything is better in ignorance

Laughter among all but her
She hides her eyes in sorrow
A life void of others
No hope for tomorrow

Disappointment is where she stands
Teased by something she can't have
Alone among a crowded crowd
Her heart wounded by lonesome's stab

A wildflower builds a wall
Unsure if she can be saved
Brick by brick is stacked
Her own prison's being paved

    Destiny, your imagery is quite vivid indeed, excellent use of metaphor, great tone and cadence throughout the read. The sorrowful soul makes one desire to reach out and lend a hand and greet with a warm assuring smile letting that soul know that she is not alone. fabulous writng my friend. I thank you for sharing such a moving read. God's Love and Many Blessings, Always, Adell

    Great poem. The subject matter is lonely....very lonely. But you wrote it so well, really breathing life into the description. Chris.
