Grandiose

‘Why isn’t it all just simple?’
She shouted on the wind
Screaming through the torrents,
Hoping they would hear.

‘Are you getting your vitamin D?’
They replied,
Bathed in salty slips
And barren faces

She slipped into the night

It held her so softly,
Like a lover’s kiss
She’d never known she’d have.
They whipped her clean

Like waving flowers
Drenched in summer tears,
She left them fly away
Onto the moon’s finger

She knew they’d be happier there
Where she was wanted
And they would keep her seat safe
In absence.

It felt so empty

The washing waters
Ink slicks sliming in merriment
Keeping her so remarkably warm
Among the darkness.

She felt them
Creeping back to her
After all this time,
It would begin
Again.

Grandiose
