A poem for you ah-choo!

Anna Rism

She arrives like the dark. Unannounced.

Invites herself in without asking and

Starts consuming everything.

I’ve screamed at her. Yelled at her.

Even threatened to kill her once.

But still she stays. Like the dark.

So then I got to thinking.

I’ll give her all my love.

Consume her like the sun.

Bore through to the very core of her

Until there is nothing left of her.

Still she sits. On the edges of my bed.

Swinging her legs. So I swing mine too.

What to do?

Me and Anna sitting by the tree;
