The Portrait Of A Sad Girl-Poem 2
Carol didn't have the elegance or the charming smile
of beautiful Mona Lisa...although being much younger;

SHOULDN'T MY DAY BE INDULGENT AND BRIGHT
Awoken by the relentless noise
of the pelting raindrops,
frightened by the gusts 
of the bending treetops,

Arcane Pedestals
Buried beneath the
Asphalt of soul,
Catapulted beneath sterile
Visages, where only the nothingness
Emerges,

Mocking hands of surliness,
Now drowning in the void of
Their ignorance,

As life slowly flinches and fades...

Buried beneath the asphalt of
