The Deepest Silhouette

Deepest Silhouette

Stretched thin and tight like a thread

or “Like butter over too much bread”

As Bilbo once said

No, more like wires of a marionette

No, no, they’re so quick to forget

Most like the strings of a quartet

Because, thin and taut and whet

Is less of a full moon, more lunette

Curved as a smile, and yet

Has shadow auspices to add depth

Hiding my flaws in a vignette

From love of friends is love beget

Making me the deepest silhouette

  1. Wow! Nice haha. Enjoying some parties is also good. No big plans here. We’ve got exams from 4th Jan … So all we gotta do is study 😔 can’t help that.

    But will enjoy new year with friends. 🙂
