Sunflower musings

A rewrite of a past poem (that somehow ended up becoming a bit more sensual than what I expected to write. Sorry... This not so P.G.)...

One Night

I slept with Melancholy

Even though I saw Hope lingering

like the last shade of orange in the dusky sky.

Melancholy, who sometimes goes by Darkness, wasn't really an old friend.

We just ran in the same circles.

She came to me that night,

With a mischievous grin like an alley cat

who's about to catch her dinner as she glowed under the moonlight.

I blushed as she laid me down,

Bare and open in front of her.

Like the dewy tulip that vibrantly blushed as it bloomed

Before shriveling up and breaking apart in the cold winter.

In the morning, I woke up with a dull pain that seeped across my back,

eliciting a soft groan from me as I stood up.

Melancholy had left me with nothing

But a pile of clothes left on the floor.

And as I waited to hear my phone's familiar ping,

it seemed like Hope was gone too.
