Silhouettes

Silhouettes short poem

Photo by Pawel Maryanov

All we ever see are Silhouettes,
They stand, about to leap,
They take deep breaths.
Dust scatters, as they are hesitant.
I want to leap,but I’m a pessimist.
For none see the impending regret.

All we ever see are Silhouettes,
And I too am one of them.
we have glass walls for towers of shadows,
The sun is the same color tomorrow, and
It makes outlines of faces hard to forget.

We are afraid to be judged as we are misfits,
While we pretend to be veiled mystics.

All we ever see are Silhouettes,
We break by the wind,or a light touch.
We’re each other’s dolls afraid to be puppets,
And no one knows what our real name is,

But, this time, I’ll leap,I’ll be an optimist.
