Cornered

 


CORNERED

silent tears, sorry circumstances

she belongs to beauty
among faces on a cover,
not just another bust on the corner

wrong intentions find her, life betrays her;
she pawns her pride for a little attention,
a touch of fire inside (that will burn her)

unless she can turn the corner

Inspired by The Sunday Whirl’s Prompt #83: silent, sorry, belong, beauty, faces, bust, wrong, find, life, pawn, pride, fire, and unless; and posted on Day #16 for the “100 Days of Fall/Winter 2012” challenge.
