Poet’s Portion

Two perspectives from one person

Yesterday I believed in love at first sight Yesterday cloud nine was within walking distance Yesterday life was everything I wanted Today I walked into reality Today it rained Today my world came crashing down Tomorrow I’ll get over it

I make love to the sunshine
It caresses me
I revel in its embrace
Let it touch my every curve
So long did I bask under fluorescent sky So long did I inhale the stagnant taste of closed doors How can I not kiss the sweet-scented blossoms
And how can I resist making love to the sunshine
