Dandelions brush my toes.
A fallen tear from the sky and your colour,
it lost me along the way.
Through an unfortunate decision
She owned the spotlight.
Stood up to a selfish motivation
The water, it’s getting quite high now.
He’s tears of heartbreak
Create a pool for her to swim
In all her glory.
(c) Shelley Blake, 2008
