Her Looks, TheGirlAtFirstAvenue

Untold stories.

November 21, 2011
She looks at you with dancing eyes
She laughs that tinkling laugh that you love
But what you don’t know is what she hides
The pain and sorrow behind that mask
She walks into the room and she owns it all
She steals their hearts and walks away
But what she doesn’t show is how she is swayed
By waves of emotion that flood over her.

She cares not for her looks nor your praise
Only pretends like she cares
Behind that graceful walk of hers
And all that cheerful love that she spreads
is a woman in pain and something worse.
She keeps her chin up in-spite of it all
not admitting defeat at any cost
nor does she care that its eating her inside
she doesn’t want to be another lost cause.

She laughs with you and fools around
acting like its just another day out
but you fail to see what’s in her heart
a million pieces ‘coz its broken apart
she’s tried her best to fix it up
but fixing it meant she would forget him
So she’d rather fake a smile and go her way
and pretend like its all okay
she’d rather have the pain and sorrow
than to not remember him tomorrow.
This is my most favorite long skirt! Perfect for a chilly winter evening, at my favorite coffee shop, sitting outdoors with a coffee in one hand and a book in the other, and some truly awesome live music playing inside. Next time you come to Hyderabad make sure you visit The Coffee Cup. A cozy hangout with really great books and heavenly coffee and extremely talented, friendly staff. Okay more about the place later! My cuppa awaits!

    I like the vibrant colors and texture of the skirt….I am so going to make a cup of coffee now 😀 And, I am a fan of Mocha. It's a shame though, that I went there just once…

    Read all pending posts. Very insightful post by Redhanded. One can always mix and match making old wardrobe new without going for shopping. Had a good laugh at What bloggers say. But mostly factual, isn't it? The world is give & take. I would love to meet all my friends, in real life or here, if it is true that world is coming to an end or for that matter if my doctor warns me of limited days left for me. You look very graceful in Sari but the captions make me ask, hope all is well. Please do share if something is weighing on your mind.

    Take care

    PS : As per your post on Bloggers, not seen you for sometime.

    Oh, sorry. Not Sari but Lehnga.

    Take care

    love this poem darling! very sweet!

  • Reply PeeVee™ December 8, 2011 at 5:09 pm

    Look at you, poetic and all:)
    It was very sweet, actually it sounds like something I can relate too on a very personal level… <3

    And though the skirt is very pretty and ethnic-y, I prefer you in shorter ones:)
