24. Man Over Fog by Kate G. 💨 - Prompt: silhouette - dedicated to the romantics #rainasmprompts #poetry #poetrycommunity #poetrysociety #poetess #womenwhowrite
Silhouette of a man over fog,
a London fog, the steam fogging his glasses,
smudged, blind to the outline of his own shadow.
In a café, reading Blake, a chuckle,
He is the wanderer above the sea,
a poet, a romantic, a fool, he is in love.
And it’s real love,
Only a fool could love real love.
Silhouette of a man in love,
a Parisian love, the kind the artists sell their souls for.
In a café, a memory of blushed cheeks,
why had he ever cared so much?
He was a fool, wandering too deep into the sea.
Only a fool could feel so deeply.
