I wrote in colored chalk today

By Acererak

I wrote in colored chalk today about just how I felt in long looping lines in flourishes and pouts

I wrote my grief in a thousand words that spilled down..... ....... asphalt

the things I loved about you moments that drove me away about those things id given those feelings id kept at bay

grainy words becoming stories that bloomed in every hue in every situation that id lived and grown into


when all was done

my heart sated for today

I found a hose and held it

then washed the chalk away
