Word High July : Balintataw

Balintataw (Day 14)


Balintataw – The pupil of the eye

I called the forbidden name
She turned to me
The shock so vivid
The pupil dilates
As she clutches her hands
To her chest

I have never met her
But I remind her
Of a cruel past
She regains composure
Baring her teeth with
Eyes that shows no warmth
