Caged

I saw you, standing there, with a slight limp

Your mouth curved up like the trees

A sickly warm breeze intensifies my already flushed cheeks

Few people walk between us,

but I don’t care.

I can only see you,

and like a mirage,

You vanished.

Where did you go?

Where did you go?

Curled against the brick wall,

The winter heats burns me

Like a broken heart being glazed to pieces

Kicking myself, screaming at myself

For being so foolish to fall in love with you

You, a temporary relief to my permanent depression

Like paper with all your secrets being thrown to the wind

Like crunchy leaves falling off bare branches

Like the sea drowning your throat.

 

The End
