Sweetened

I wait in the shade, the sun seeks my eye.

Dust swirls at my feet as people flutter by.

The scorch of the heat bestows favours upon me,

Tanning me chocolate, streaming through a tree.

Cars fume upon me (I’m standing in their way).

Buses screech and grumble and noisy children play.

All this on one street (oh hell, it’s so crowded!)

Draining me of life; I’m left tired, shrouded.

My mouth’s all dry and sore, my soles simply aching.

Summer’s embrace tightens and I’m slowly baking.

Impatience dawns quickly (God knows where you are)

And then I see you coming, smiling from afar.

I am sweetened.
