Random Poem:

on losing you

i think i thought i knew you
your lips like rosebuds
and curious eyes.
you called me simone
and danced to my melody.
you moulded your curves
to fit around mine,
held my hand
and smiled.
somewhere along the
way i lost you
to blue skies
and red lips
(lips like rosebuds),
your sweetness swallowed
that three year itch had
settled between your heavy brows,
and festered.
your curves are colder now,
tragedy rains in your sky.
a blonde-haired boy who laughed
one summer.
we could have fixed you
but someday never comes.
