The Pigeon On The Pavement

The way she holds herself
Says it wasn't her alone
But her cigarette is shaking
Her gaze is going down

There's a pigeon on the pavement
That reminds me of the sea
And that everything I wanted
And found was not for me

If she ever felt like crying
I would be someone to blame
With a shoulder too hard to lean on
You're just standing in the way

And that pigeon on the pavement
That reminds me of the sea
As it will never fly away again
That pigeon there is me

She raises her eyeline
And her face says 'Sorry' too
It just takes a shaking whisper
And one person turns to two

And the pigeon on the pavement
That reminds me of the sea
Looks for something to hold on to
As she walks away from me

To see yourself in another person is one thing, to express it in poetry is another. You did it well.
