Nowhere Girl on the Horizon MAG

By Numen Enders, Worcester, MA

What’s making you nervous, little blond-haired girl?
Lost in a red dress in her own little world
A forest of change with falling leaves and dead trees
But you still seem to smile for seconds
For me
But as you run toward the purple cloudy horizon of such a long trail
Like a movie it seems slow, like every minute is frozen
I don’t know where you’re going but I’d like to go too, but my dream is closing
So I’ll say good-bye to you

Same as the comment above me. I've never been able to keep my poems condensed's amazing how you can do it! I love your poem!

This is absoultly wonderful! It's so sad but it kind of makes you want to smile! I've never been very good at making short poems sound good but you've seem to have mastered it!
