When no one is looking

Carnation in color
matching no other
sun kissed are the petals
I dare not disturb her

Instead
I steadily write with my pen
taking note
of how she dances in the wind

She didn’t bob or weave
it was a heartfelt curtsy
Pausing
I saw that she wasn’t free

Ensnared to a life of loneliness
she frees herself in the emptiness
with eyes that glanced her way
She’s alive

Only from a distance 
can she appreciate happiness

      I’m happy as well! I think I’ll be doing 3 poems every Sunday, just to make up for lost time in between

        Thanks! I recently have written something but it’s still incomplete. You know how it is.
