Beauty Behind The Beholder

Posted: December 6, 2010 in Poems

A bouncing companion

Free from his leash

Frozen in time

With a farewell note

Copied beneath

And an inky signature

To end it all


Paused in the moment

She picked up the only

Splash of color to be seen

Overwhelming the senses

With sweet sensation

Words of wisdom

Float beneath

In elegant script


In sync with their purpose

They stick together until fate

Tears them apart

Demanding them to uphold

The memories

We’re compelled to show off



They lay patiently

Hugging each other close

Unaware of

(Or perhaps without care for)

The little hitchiker

On one’s back


Rejected to the rear

Despite her multicolor appearance

Her sharp personality

Her stars no longer shine

She is disregarded

And soon forgotten


Silver links of life

Turn copper and start

To crumble away

From age



And pain


And soon enough

She’ll be pushed back

Further yet

When her hosts

Are summoned

And once the brief second

Of recogniton is over

She is thrown down

Once again

But this time

Without hope

To cling onto

    a farewell note, an abandonment after giving a child that wasn’t wished for.. then the loss of support, burdened by life and the effects of age telling.. a story through words that says a lot in less. well said!
