City Girl

19 March 2018

Orange painted sunsets and
a depth of grey,
A canvas of molten
silver light
Sigh of smoke spilling
from her lips;
colourless in
the night,

incandescent in
the bright


She was born
as the chaos arrived

Fiery temper,
burning heart


Memories of
satin summers,
silky rain

golden laughter,
a hurricane


Pink painted sunsets and
a sea of blue,
A canvas of airy
rolling waves
Piece of horizon stolen
from her eyes;
She waves goodbye and
sighs it in,

a silent promise for
what has been.
