You’re back to the big bad city
In your tight, comfortable sweaters
Just in time for spring, the leaves breathing
Afresh as you do, healing.
Your new haircut, and your bracelets
Now make you feel pretty
Ready to rise like a phoenix from the ashes
And then something in your memory flashes
That old love you once had,
Still beats in your heart
And how they looked on in pity
And you take a step back and remind yourself to be gritty
There is now a sparkle in your eyes
A determination to be better
And to start all over
From all the given goodbyes.
So now you look forward to the new you
In this old city you just returned to
With the same old people you left back for a while
Looking for that same old enchanting smiles.
Because it’s NaPoWriMo, another Poetry Challenge based on the theme colour.
The Colour Challenge: A week of original poetry based on seven colours.
Day 5: White
(I’m extending the challenge by trying to tell a story through the seven colours I choose. Don’t know if it’ll work out though.:P)
