The Slow Walk Poem by Sally Plumb Plumb


She walked the flatlands
with the sincerity of a dullard
when her thoughts crumbled..

causing memory pain,
solidifying errors
of judgement and fault,
the weight of consience
and a heavy heart...

but she smiled,
a superficial smile,
and carried on
walking the last mile home.
