Her head tilted
Just bit to the left when she spoke
Looking for all the world as if she
Was seeing things no one else could

Unsettling
her words
left a vague feel of disquiet
Although what was spoken had
No undertones
or need to hide

When eyes met mine
they seemed lost in a maze
With forgotten beginning
No thought of an end

She began a tale
Woven from past
But swayed, distracted
As if charmed by the piper
Drawing her out in hypnotic chase
Of words to describe
Explain


I listened
Watching for fears
But found nothing
Except that her head tilted a bit
To the left when she spoke
And the world
Disappeared

Rapt attention from curiosity? fear? Was this one of the lost but tethered medicated? I like poems begging questions.

RS... yes it is one of those that begs questions and can be taken in many ways... once in a while I get lucky and write one like that. Thanks for the thoughts..

Sy: you're kind my friend... none of the beauty you share in these words or most of mine.. thank you.

Loner: thank you kindly for the words and for taking time to read.

JB: It isn't that camera on your monitor you should worry about ( chuckling) Thank you forr the kind thoughts and words.. I just write what I think or see...and sometimes get lucky enough to do one well enough someone can relate to it..

Ser... wicked? (laughing) YOu dear friend are always a surprise... thank you for the words...and glad you enjoyed..

Martie: thanks my friend...  just playing at thoughts...

"She" must have felt incredibly ignored by your lack of attention.   NOT!

You truly are a wonderful observer of human behavior. I could visualize the scene as if it were before my very eyes (and yours! tehe)

Devilishly good...You DO have that quality of making the reader wish/hope that it was written just for her...

and when you write for the man, him, too!  LOL...

Good one, Captain.  More, please...

Haunting. You're a favourite of mine.
