A Better Effort

When she saw me

she smiled


like a child

but there was loneliness

in the corners of her lips

it was only when I 


I thought

I could have made

a better effort

but I didn’t

my lost, I think!

By  Paolo Michell   


About pmisteil

Hi, my name is Paul though I write under other names like, Thatcher and Paolo, I love literature, art and architecture their passion and drama....the contradictions. The notion of Truth-who is the person behind the mask? Or does it matter! I like long walks and longer conversations over cappuccinos in a cafe with atmosphere and the rest is a journey!
