Prompt 22: Faces

Thanks to Lissa at Just Writing Words for this week's prompt of faces. Thanks also for sharing your poem and for providing the artwork.


they stare but they don't look at you
their faces crimson with lonely joy
their bodies pressed against the wall
happiness escape their lips
as their eyes looks downward
hoping for you to notice them
hoping they would be caught
before they fall
downcast into despair
hoping every day
to be taken home
