autumn fall

by romanova

The days are getting shorter The mourning shadows Stretch out cold fingers that Close around my ankles

Cocooned in layers Accidently opposites Next to me you beam orange and plaid Comfortably, uncomfortable

Sitting at a bus stop You untangle the tendrils That remain coiled at my feet Heat flushing my cheeks

Standing above me Is what fever looks like An outline etched with sunlight Words cascading a torrent of gilded smiles

The days might be shorter But they are hotter Incinerating under your gaze I blaze incandescently

But young flames Burn quick And our wicks are inadequate To carry Summer

You, my mirage Begin to waver and Look through me and Past me

Cannot believe I have learnt The nuances of dehydration Cannot believe I have learnt How to seek out a desert

I missed my bus And chose to swelter.
