Orange Sunsets by Anna S. Kapungu

Yellow tulips in Autumn
Fell in love was blinded
Truth was my mirror
Shrink from one’s self
Unveiled the vulnerability
Believed love was love
Brimming with radiance
Pure like the rays of comfort
Love with layers
But love never persisted
Within the lie I lived
Wrecked all my days
Silenced the nights
Tell nights to the North Arctic winds
Believed love would come home
Lived akin to the rivers
That flows steadily to the sea
Smoothed the rocks on the ocean floors
Smothered the insides of me
Understood love has passed
Fled like the pelicans to Alaska
Sunk to the bottom of the sea
Like orange sunsets meet the horizons
