She will be loved

deviantart.com

She dredges her feet
mumbling
she staggers
striking the pavement

she has been crying
running from the shadows
on the wall that enters her
room at night to mount her

she is reeking of alcohol
whiffs of wind blows
it into the faces of passersby
recede from her

she had a dream of a world
with the loves of her life
and here she is jumping from bed to bed
in the arms of others’ love

My first poem of 2011. Started on a sad note. This is a story of a woman I met few years ago.
