Reflections of Lady Abigail

I yearn for the pucker of youth that I once relished,

I ache for the shimmering face that could arrest the eyes of others,

A pursing of my lips only discloses the sunken contours of my face,

A wild flaring of my eyes only exudes bleakness,

My soul is dim,

I’m a shattered rose,

I’m crumbling,

I’m withering,

I crave the fragrance of light musk, summer dresses, flower picking, the lightness of step.

Time, you wait for nobody!

Time, you are not my friend!

I close my eyes in fear of my knowledge,

Inside I cry,

I fly,

I die.

    Those first 3 lines…Omg, loved them!

  2. I SO feel this! Truly beautiful melancholy with that touch of realism that everyone can identify – I swear, this makes me want to cry and dance at the same time!

  3. Aah! The curse of aging! For me, it is in the subtlety of it all- things really do fall to gravity even if you keep yourself in great shape. Well written.

    true, true… true.

  5. Melinda says:

    That first line, grabbed my attention immediately 🙂

  6. A wonderfully evocative piece which captures aging so very well.

    Beautifully portrayed existential exist. The writing resembles the Myth of the Sisyphus by Albert Camus. Anand Bose from Kerala

    sorry I meant angst instead of exist.
