Chimera Poetry

stonegirlstefibn

In the brightness outside surrounded by bustle
and sunshine and chatter
I am encased
smothered in a cold stone skin
held apart from the lives swirling in color and in movement around me
as if I gazed with unshaded eyes upon medusa
I move, I breathe but cannot blend
People see me but I am forgotten a moment later as if I leave no imprint
my coffee delivered without comment
and taxis pass by with no notice taken of my raised arm
In a bold moment I stretch out my fingers
in curious trembling trepidation
and touch
a cool grained granite shell
I retreat
withdraw
and keep my solitary walk with only a shadow as companion

About chimerapoet

I write. I write a lot. A. LOT. There are times I am half blind with a sentence ricocheting off the walls of my stupid, cant be shut off to save my life, brain. I am miserable until I get it down on paper. Punch it up a bit. Usually cross out half of it. And then breathe. Relax. Only to do it all again..... But I just thought that was me. How I am. Not a writer....noooo...not me. Writers are.....writing people. People Who Write. REALLY write. Write things that matter. All grown up very important things. Not.....me. I am just a scribbler of sorts. And I was/am content with that....if it's true, well then....a scribbler am I. Until the thought wormed its way in to my brain (the furtive sneaky bitch) that maybe...just maybe...that is writing. My style. My strange way. But....still writing. So here I am at the dance. Not sure I know any of the moves and the music is entirely mine. But.....only one way to find out. Would you care to join me?
