Her Stare (poem)

Updated on July 30, 2015

What is it captured there within her stare

Which lingers softly somewhere in her past

Some splendid dream that she had hoped might last

For all we know for her it’s all still there


Those tender whispers of I love you dear

Those kisses lasting deep into the night

Are they the Joys still dancing in her sight

Are they the heart beats that only she can hear


How can she share what we can’t understand

Or are our dreams so very far away

And when they’re shattered what is left to say

Or will a stare recall what dreams had planned


Stare on fair princess go rejoin your dreams

This world’s no longer meant for you it seems

      Who is the world meant for? None of us really knows. Mannequin or not, her stare perfectly depicts the stare of one who wonders.

      Voted up, beautiful, and interesting.

      She does seem to be recalling a far away memory.

      Mesmerizing! Frozen in the moment. I enjoyed the poem and the video is a beautiful accompaniment.

      Yes, the photo is a mannequin, looks like to me, so it would stare ...

      I am not sure I understand the last line about the world not being meant for her.

      Interesting though! Love the video.

      Strange Martin. The photo made me think of a mannequin and the poem was weird to get the kisses, etc., from that photo. I still voted it up, shared and pinned it.
