Weekend Words


She looked the part
confident, outgoing, fun

But they could not see
what she saw

The workings in her mind
The window she looked through

She pulled thoughts in
and then sorted
This one here, that one there
Creating order from the mix

Satisfied, she shut the window
Content for a time
in her solitary space

But then
needing air,
her window was flung open
To the world
