Color Her Lonely

Color her in shades of lonely
as July chokes the vine,
drying and drooping
from Sun’s daily, deadly shine.

Color her in hues of empty
as she walks through the night,
willing owl’s screeches
and field mice skittering with fright.

Color her in darks of solitude
as Moon crests on waves,
and fog horns blare
disrupting peaceful, watery graves.

Color her in pales of longing
as hunger wishes him near,
a sultry exhale,
his warm breath against her ear.
