Homeless Portrait

Jeff Bell


So sad the homeless portrait, desire
caught in eyes too personal the message
for others to see. Is this why most masters
captured eyes so dull?
Caught in no man's land of hidden love,
a glimpse of past possibility well and truly lost.
Thoughts of why it feels better never to return,
even to places having never seen before.
The airport, the motorways, the skyline of
 an unknown city, all forever hidden.

 Time stopped as picture made ready,
 maybe overwound reason for hold in time.
 Now only closed Post Office brings return,
 from stalled journey back to first home.
