The calm of the midnight street enthralls you
As the orange light of the streetlight
Washes over the street in front of the window
And you look back at the new friend you have made.
Slowly, the love letters creep back
Their place, rightfully, into the bookshelves
And the photographs, a trope
Of your life- begins to refill
Everything about him fits your bill
Or that’s how you certainly like to hope
Straight in your heart the stranger dwells.
And in all the patience and love you lack
But now you know you wouldn’t trade
Everything you learnt the last couple of weeks though
And you know your conscience will fight
Against you being adamant too
And that’s when you calm down
Comfortably onto your plush bed
“I want nothing but love,” he said
And you have a heart full of it, for going around.
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 6: Orange.
(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)
