Elegance

image

 

There’s nothing elegant
in the way I was dressed.
I find it hard to believe
she thought I was ‘chic’.
To be referred to as elegant
simply blew me away.
What did she see
that I can’t ?

Poetry

Obsolescence

image

 

The music
Has lost its meaning.
The rhyme
Has lost its reason.

The smile
Is gone from her face.
The memory of him
Can’t be replaced.

What was all
Of the effort for?
Why build a foundation
They now ignore?

None of this
Makes a bit of sense.
How to move on
While stuck in past tense?

Can’t shake the feeling
Of abstract existence.
Not sure where she belongs
Inside obsolescence.

If I see a construction site
with workmen outside
I usually crossover to the other side of street.
Would you like to guess why?
