Poem By Melvina Germain

A lamp post, dark, dismal, barren street,
waiting in anticipation for the dealers wheels.
Tattered clothes, stiletto heels on weary feet.

A face torn, by the wrath of time,
no family, no loved ones to call her own.
No idea, where she will sit to dine.

Headlights slowly come to a stop,
she reaches out with quivering hands,
wondering all the while, could this be a cop.

Written Germain

quietly sleeping, in shimmering folds.

I left you lying there in a faded red dress.

It was a cool night with a slight drizzle in the air.

Forgiveness, a heartfelt decision.
The clearing of one’s heart without remission.
A voice from deep within, contemplates,
removal of festered thoughts of sin.
