The White Dress

white_dress_800x200

As rain streams down
the windscreens of passing cars,
the white dress
still flails
against the gutter.
Torn and faded,
smeared with mud,
it still tries
to pull itself up
as the world bears down.
Once loved
with innocence
it’s now forgotten,
lost,
and left to weather the storm
alone.
