Mary’s outfit isn’t matching
It is a cover
broken
Does she care?
Mary sighs a symphony
It sings
Like a lark
Does she know?
Mary walks a one-way street
Over air
Alone
Can she stop?
Mary is fading
Into the wind
In a dark sky
Is she invisible yet?
Mary
is
gone.
Did you know?

I like the short lines. The poem talks of a girl named Mary who is in a way, invisible, her talent---singing--- unknown even to her. She is there, but not really there. Interesting~

I absolutely loved this. I'm trying to find something constructive to point out that I didn't like, and I can't find anything. Very well done, loved the short lines, and the last one in particular.
