The fast paced moment of a girl in her room...

“Colors Splashed”

 

The colors splashed

across her room

as she spun

herself around

her music loud

her body light

she drops onto

the ground

the summer sun

shines through

her hair

as the dew

begins to die

a distant dog

howls to the

wind

she thinks about

a guy

she changes shirts

zips up her

jeans

her mirror gets

a nod

she hits repeat

and mouths

the words

she really loves

the song

her phone

blows up

he’s on his

way

pouty lips

a shade of

red

her look is

hitting hard

right now

who says that

rock is dead

her eyes go

wide

they take it

in

her world in

a box

too many

words

not much to

say

her life

runs icy hot

she wraps it

up

tomorrow’s

day

she sets it

on a shelf

another time

a different

way

her beating

heart

won’t melt 

the colors

cascade down

the walls

like dreams

that turned

to liquid

a waterfall

of thoughts

and things

she lost

when

fifteen

got evicted

no answers

to electric

moods

that bring

forth

speculation

just step

aside

enjoy the

ride

this girl

is going to

break it…
