Simile experiment

eyes meet like a reflection in a mirror,

lips curve like a horseshoe.

His pace quickens as If the breeze was carrying him,

Her direction changes like a leaf in the wind.

his face stalls like a rusty engine,

head hung like a captured pirate.

he notes this in his mind like a checklist and carries on.

 

Eyes meet like hooks,

lips curve like a graph.

his pace quickens like a skidding pebble,

her direction changes like an exit on a highway.

his face stalls like traffic,

head hung like an escapee.

this remains in his mind like residue
