The Other Side Of The Coin

The Other Side Of The Coin short poem

Photo by -Jeffrey-

It’s a toss, head or tail but you never know,
She shows the head and buries the tail but still you can’t tell,
She seems right but what of her other side?
Who is there to share the other side of the coin?

Aimlessly searching for the right person,
To share her other side of the coin,
Who is bold to share her other side?
Right, left, up and down is there anyone?

She is hurt, rejected, abused, abandoned and a loner,
She sleeps in fear and in dark rooms she cannot stand alone,
She hopes to find one person who she can pour her heart out to,
In the rains she tries to run and hope the other side would get washed by the rains,

It’s a toss, head or tail but which side of the coin do we know?
She smiles back to strangers to hide her darkest secrets,
She spend sleepless nights trying to let go off her past but she just can’t,
Do we know her other side of the coin- it’s a toss.
