Adrian Mallory – Throwing Roses in the Rain

Throwing Roses In The Rain

Billowing in the intense gaze of cold wind
with the flow of an electrified tapestry
Red petals dance the dance of the young and free
tickling the nerves at the surface of the skin
on hands that once knew how to hold another

Now wistful eyes are drawn to the stimulus
To witness reincarnation of her hips.
red dress dancing to a beat he couldn’t feel
When she traded Choreography for nature
As her cares lifted, and the dress with them

This brief moment, invisible to the eye
Blew all of his practiced composure away
he felt the cold of his rain soaked shorts again
Standing outside her house for the first time in months
With all his vulnerability on display
he threw his rose to the rain and ran away
