Oomph

tik-tok sound of stilettos
and everything it carries
captures hearts

you gather appreciation
with a stolen glance
tilt of the neck,
then walk away
wrapped in vanity

hoping to leave
trails of bleeding hearts

they are busy admiring
the next model on the ramp

  1. Absolutely true. What a relief it could be to know you’re not the only one being broken into pieces by critical eyes, once you change your perspective. Hopefully she learns to “gather appreciation” in a healthier way, and for more important (and less fleeting) things.

    P.S. I love the blue around her eyes!
