Waiting On A Street Corner - Poem by Charl JF Cilliers

She stands on
a street corner
waiting for someone
who needs her
to come along.

It’s cold inside
like the mist that slowly
slides towards
her, bends around

her like warm headlights
that suddenly
illuminate all

of them there
where she stands
waiting for someone
who wants her
to come along.
