Reena’s Xploration Challenge- 184

Reena is the host of Reena’s Xploration Challenge

Welcome back!

I happened to be doing the sub-titles on a video, and in the process, I re-discovered the expressions of the speaker, and re-interpreted many words. Close observation is something we miss on a regular call.

Well, I had faces and expressions on mind, so here’s this week’s prompt.

There is no restriction on length of the piece. There is no last date either, unless you wish to be featured in the Weekly Wrap.


When you look at me what do you see
Do you see the pain behind my smile
The wistfulness behind my beauty
Can you see I want to speak my mind
But I am here just to adorn not to add
A beautiful woman who can look intelligent
But no one asks her opinion or point of view
Why have I become bitter, disillusioned, you ask
Spend a little time in my shoes and you’ll understand.

  1. The expression on this face is one that I have had myself and have seen on my friends. I call this expression the covid expression. It is an expression of being worn out and tired. I am severely neglecting my self-care and I can’t give any more.
