A Poem a Day #2

Today's Prompt: "Today, I want you to write an outsider poem. You can be the outsider; someone else can be the outsider; or it can even be an animal or inanimate object that's the outsider."


Outside Looking In

Glass barrier
rain embossed pane
of iron gray
firm, hard, impenetrable
see-through
blockade
to comfort

Glass wall
mist stained pane
of cold silver
frozen, stiff, impassable
clear
hindrance
to warmth

Glass facade
tear sullied pain
of empty slate
fragile, brittle, impermeable
transparent
obstacle
to rest


To see what this is all about, go to Poetic Asides.

  3. When it comes to talent I'm outside
    Reading this poem I sat and cried
    Because today I really tried
    But yours is better I sighed .
