by Lainie Belcastro

He came into my life like a bolt of lightning, a storm full of thunder,

With a downpour of all the words I wanted to hear.

He instinctively knew I thrived in the sun,

So, he warmed me with his body and we became one.

But then, clouds appeared and like the wind his feelings scattered in so many directions,

Leaving me lost in the fog.

  1. That's how it goes sometime--moments of wine of roses--out of the fog, back into the fog.
