Three Word Wednesday (Prompt words- Pale, Douse, Naughty)
With real Toads (open Link)


***********
She looked down at her reflection
dull, drab, drag & douse
was it joy or fear
or the anxiety that's no dear

She looked upon her reflection
the pale blue attraction
she got stunned and shunned
away the movement. 
while refusing to react
numb and dumb founded
she failed to understand

and so she lied there
as she laid in complete trance
nor word nor speech float her
she changed no glance

sun didn't warm her much
she sat awake drenched
sunk in slumber of stillness
she stayed there, un-quenched


time did not stop for her
like a naughty child well behaved
searching for her expression,
she stayed still & awake.

***********

  2. A haunting poem. There's an undercurrent of angst and despair and hopelessness here that seeps through the words right into the soul.

    (PS: Coincidentally, just a few minutes back, I posted a response to your Open Link query on a different post of yours. I just saw you'd managed to link your poem to IGWRT :) Hope I was of some help at least :P Cheers!)

  4. Hi would you mind sharing which blog platform you're working with? I'm going to start my own
    blog soon but I'm having a hard time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I'm
    looking for something unique. P.
    S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!


    Look into my page methadone addiction

  8. This poem really resonates with me. I often find myself avoiding my reflection. Other times I see my mother in my reflection, or my grandmother, and know time is going on as it should. Time does not stop for anyone.

    1. That's a beautiful way of expressing it. I can relate to this. yesterday, I was flipping some of my old pics of 2008-09 and I realized that I look a lot like my granny and also my father. I tried to search my mother's features in me but the granny feature came out really well.

      I miss my granny big time. She was one of the most beautiful things in my life.
