She Passes By
Each variation in your eyes
betrays their normal veiled disguise.
Wistfully they follow one
by whom you have been undone.
As they follow, hither and nigh
each time your former love walks by,
she who trampled on your heart
once more upsets the apple cart
and affection tumbles out
and draws you like a waterspout,
wistfully to tumble there,
your tender hopes high in the air.
But false illusions must fall to earth
where they discover their true worth
as they are trampled into earth.
Prompt words today are eyes, tender, trample, nigh, variation, wistfully.
so very poignant
