Just Ordinary

by lost

You smell like strawberries.

I don't really have a favorite fruit. But you made strawberries my favorite.

Your eyes were like a puddle in the mud.

I never enjoyed puddles. But whenever I see them, I think of you.

Your hair was the color of sunlight.

Sunkissed. I couldn't take my eyes off it.

I wanted those strawberries, those puddles, that sunlight.

I wanted you.

Your lips tasted like honey.

I couldn't get enough.

But I found now that I had you,

I started hating the smell of strawberries.

Puddles, were just puddles.

They settle when it rains.

Sunlight was just sunlight.

You see it everyday.

Honey was just honey.

I could taste honey everywhere.

I pushed you away.

The strawberries became rotten;.

The sunlight faded.

As soon as you left

I found myself realizing, you were special, And I lost that because in my mind,

You were nothing at all.

This was worded so well that I enjoyed reading this dark tale of discovery and loss. You do a great job at writing. I loved the message of taking something for granted and then losing a treasure. Great job!
