100 Word Wednesday: Week 97

This week’s photo for Bikurgurl’s 100 WW challenge is by Sebastien Gabriel

An image within an image,
An outsider looking in,
Constant noise all around,
But silence contained within.
Tweak the light accordingly,
Play with the brightness too,
Proof of being where he was,
She’d never know with who.
Technology is wonderful,
It can hide deceit and lies,
Emphasise what isn’t there,
Oblivious of teary eyes.
He thought he’d got away with it,
Then in the corner clear
He saw his wife and children,
What were they doing here?
She walked across the road towards
Him standing still in place,
Then calmly standing in the rain,
She slapped him across the face.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.
