Descending up

Disappointments descend, flutter, circle down, surrounding me

Like autumnal crimson leaves fall to rest at the base of a maple tree

Like layers of discarded, crumbling leaves, covering me up

Like last night’s blankets and denied possibilities

Like last night’s dreams


Like me.

  1. I love the diminishing form of this, so suiting to the words. Love the repetition of both “leaves” and “like.” I felt this, deeply.

    1. Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. I’ve had the image of falling leaves and layering for a little bit and was pleased to have ‘up’ as the prompt. I think it matches the emotion and while being aligned still contrasts (if that makes sense).
