She, A Life


The lines in her face conceded a generation of secrets.

Ones perfectly ordinary yet embarrassingly withheld.

A life of chaos deemed irreparable, but always with

a handful of unused chances given over, and

silent spaces ready to restore.


How much lovelier would she have felt with a hint

of truth revealing just how ordinary she truly was?
