The girl with tangerine lips

I stood in the street
Watching the city pass by
Kaleidoscope dreams

The bright lights flashing
The sad song of traffic noise
The scent of decay

I was quite alone
Stranger among the thousands
Until I saw her

She cocked her cute head
The girl with the tangerine lips
Her timeless question
Why did she choose me?
How could I tell her story?
Whose daughter was she?

  1. Ooh..nice twist at the end...and the sad song of traffic noise..a sad poem Old Egg and it feels achingly it must be for some...

  2. Started out so sad and then.....did you follow her

  3. Every woman, no matter how far she has fallen, is someone's little girl.
