As The Vacant Pendant Hangs Loosely - Poem by indira babbellapati

sad eyes
afraid eyes
stare far into
empty space

the vacant pendant
hangs around the expectant neck
every wind chime
charging her with hope
Where is he?
where is he?
Moans the heart

Sun scatters its light
Through the stone pendant;
light slowly fading...

Sad eyes
Afraid eyes
Staring into blank space
For the one who never returns!

    the poet's notes look significant, don't they? you are the feminist of the modern times!
    the figure in the poem is search-incarnate! ! !
