Two Poems

by Erren Kelley

The Med Student

Why am i nervous
Of this woman sitting across
From me?
Petite, hiding behind glasses
Who would  be considered unspectacular
By most
Yet, somehow got my attention
This woman, plain as daylight
Easily, half my size, like a leaf
Nonchalantly, sat at my table
Her face is undistinguished
Blank and cold
Yet, there is something  extraordinary
About her ordinariness
She’s a miracle packaged
As a routine, a
Revelation in plain sight
An angel dressed in plain jane
Clothes

Going To The Symphony Alone

It wouldve been nice
Though i don’t need a companion
To make music fun
The sound of flutes remind me 
Of your voice
The violin on the Brahms
Concerto mimics your
Breezy disposition
And the cello fondly
Mimics the shape of
You
If music be the food of
Love , you would be a feast
Of melody
But as Beethoven could not
Hear his symphonies
I imagine an empty chair
Singing to 
Me
