I wrote in colored chalk today

By Acererak

I wrote in colored chalk today
about just how I felt
in long looping lines
in flourishes
and pouts

I wrote my grief
in a thousand words
that spilled down.....

the things I loved about you
moments that drove me away
about those things id given
those feelings id kept at bay

grainy words becoming stories
that bloomed in every hue
in every situation that
id lived and grown into


when all was

my heart sated for today

I found a hose and held it

then washed
the chalk away
