You came into my drab life unannounced. I didn’t seek you. I had become resigned to being out in the cold. Suddenly you were there and life was bright, mellow sunshine.
You seduced me by degrees.
I thought that you were here to stay; that you would never leave me.
This morning I awoke and you were gone. You left like a thief in the night, stealing my hope.
I trudged to work through a world of gray; sleeting, chilling snow turning to slush as it hit the puddles that are all you left behind.
Spring, you done me wrong.
