melted. #poetry

When I found you,
You were strong and dark…
Sweet with just the right amount
Of bitter.

When I left you,
You were weak and pale…
Like iced coffee when the ice
Has melted.

About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, sometimes blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Italy, but she would settle for a non-oceanfront home in Italy. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.

  4. ……but what happened in between? Was anyone to blame? Were they both at fault? Had one changed, and the other remained the same, or had both changed?

    This makes me think….probably too much.

    More than coffee…like a partner who pretends to be more than they are and then you find out it was all a façade.
    Beautiful Sandra!

    Oooh… this could go either way. Either he was never strong and dark to begin with or the relationship with her drained it all away! Very well done! Leaves it to the imagination!
