I Dont Know The Words To Your Life Story - Poem by Natalia Nolte

Your face is gray
In the cold dead winter
You open your mouth
To tell me a story
Your teeth clack together
And you look into the distance silently
You are dissapointed
I can tell
Your mouth opens again
And this time you speak
It's your life story
It's filled with happiness
And good luck
Then how did you end up here?
I turn away
You grab my shoulder
'Tell me my life story Gib' you say
I am afraid
I turn back around
' I dont know the words to your life story'
Then I walk into the grayness
