Lit Up

Talks with a Stranger

free verse

Fully present, I,
Taking in vibrations,
Eyes shine, mouth wrinkles.

Do I take this for granted? Am I really truly
present? Would I listen more if I knew, for a time
this is the last time, I would meet someone new?




Welcome to Lit Up -The Land of Little Tales. Here you can read and submit short stories, flash fiction, poetry - in brief, your own legend. We're starting little. But that's how all big stories begin.
