A Billowing Grey Shade by Bobbi Sinha-Morey

She stood there silhouetted
against the afternoon sunlight
as if her belief in God had been
stolen away and she could barely
warm up her grim smile. What
lay burdened inside her heart
with such a billowing grey shade?
And why did the lack of hope
veil her eyes? It felt as if she
were a woman with only half
a soul; no loving glow to brighten
her face and it made me think
she must have lead an abysmal
life and I longed to steal a rose
that blushed so radiantly, give
it to her, just to absorb all
the darkness she held inside.
With a heaviness I so suddenly
felt I quietly told myself, she
close a long, slow way to die.
