a modern love story

you told me I was your sunset

because I laughed

in shades of lilac and magenta

and my smile held specks of stolen sunlight

 

the scent of mahogany teakwood

cologne whispered comfort,

filled my lungs,

and pulled me in a warm embrace

 

we danced on the green grass blades

as we watched the day dwindle

into a deep blue sea of night lights

and the moon awaken

 

you told me I was your sunset

because I always ended the day

in a saturated sort-of-way

but I don’t think you meant it

 

the smell of weed

and lilac air freshener

spoke to me

they told me you’re different

 

we sat barefoot on the concrete driveway

as we watched the day dwindle

into the violet black abyss

with all of it’s freckles

 

that’s when I understood

what it meant to be with each other

yet feel as far away from you

as the east is from the west

 

you told me I was your sunset

that’s when I saw it in your eyes

you kissed me one last time

I knew that was goodbye
