Poetry by Sarah, Cinquain

Twilight

Twilight.
Starkly barren.
Glowing. Sinking. Setting
sun entraps Cimmerian shade.
Nightfall.

Seduced

Allure…
Perturbed, confused.
Glancing. Gazing. Gaping.
Flittering heartbeats, we converge.
Seduced.

Panic.
Deviant mind
flagging, wobbling, drowning.
Stoicism propels me to
withstand.

Cinquain, Poetry by Sarah

Outside Myself

Being.
Confused; detached.
Watching, hearing, saying,
never understanding; I’m outside
myself.
