Ever Present Changes

Flowers are fading as winter hangs in the air,
hot chocolate in her hands and a smug smile on her face.
Trees grasp to the last of their green glimmer,
glittering lover’s tears trickling down the solid branches as another departure is dragged out,
winter’s wicked grin towers grim over autumn’s last weeks,
watching the earth wither and die.
It’s okay.
Everything will return,
just as it always does,
if I wait,
I can be here to see it.

Forecast

The leaves are threatening to fall again,

dreich days replace the summer haze that I barely noticed until it was all I needed,

and then, suddenly, the sun was nowhere to be seen,

and the leaves leapt from the trees.

This does not bode well.

Seasons Change

Orange trees,

leaning against the horizon,

days tire and go home sooner,

our world famous rainy days have returned.

I thought about the wasted summer,

how I barely made friends with the sun,

we were shy acquaintances,

and now I can barely see her face.

I drink hot chocolate,

as the trees in my yard stare me down,

waving their brittle, broken branches,

watching me write my way into trouble,

because the seasons may change,

but I never do.

Early Autumn

Walls explode around us,

terror tears tarnished paint,

impossible, defiant futures,

trampling on loneliness.

We are peroxide,

burning through the dullest days,

blinding mirrors,

raising rainbows to wrap ourselves in.

We dream of death,

sleeping souls, surrounded by green leaves,

too young to have fallen,

but hungry to be close to us.

You are locked inside a salmon shirt.

I long to set you free,

begging my shaking hands,

to cooperate.
