Demure – yet not

She sits
None of the hair frayed

Flashs of colour
peeks through
The prim dull greys

The naughty and wild
Securely hidden
Reigning in the crave

What the cloths hide
what lies in the mind
The eyes betrays

I am a dreamer I weave tales in my mind I am connected to you through these words through this screen across the virtual world I and my tales within
