on reflection

image lee friedlander, from "america by car" provided by tess at magpie tales


on reflection
his world
fell to pieces

when
standing at the window
she thought
she saw him
watching her
watching him

they were quickly
and easily
drawn together

then inseparable

mirror-images
of each other
destined
and designed
to shatter

watching her, watching him....what dances through life we lead...funny that our magpies have the underlying despair of lost love and passion but in a mirror image!!! xx kay

kay i think there's a script runs through people, pieces of which become the film in your head when prompted. it's based on thwarted wish, unfulfilled narrative, fantasy. steven

When we play the WOW, we need to try get the WOW Gold Cheap,thst's to say, spend less money, do we have any good way to Buy WOW Gold from trust friends or some way else? When we have that we can play the game becomes more quickly and update the levels more easy.
