Stranger (Free verse) by Roisin
The smoky dust cloud Whips my eyes shut Just in time. I do not see you Across from me Buying a cheap bunch of carnations. As I rub my stinging eyes You pass me inconspicuously, But drop a book From your loaded worn bag. It falls open at The last page: The bittersweet end of a Melancholy romance. Where two lovers lay dead, Ruined by love.

Down the ladder: he was scared.

Very interesting. Simple, with a hint of meta. I think I like.

Speaking of, perhaps there should be an "add this to your favorites" from the poem-vote page...
