Falling out of love


What we were

doesn’t matter anymore.

I look at photos

of the sweet lavender

fields

in Provence, France

where we used to go to

whenever we were feeling

adventurous.

Nostalgia creeps up on me

(yet again)

painting a vision of a whole

mass of purple

gently swaying

as if all in

sync

with the melodious

whistles of the wind

under the massive scope of

celestial skies.

It is then that I realise

that it never

mattered,

never made a

difference,

for together we were as purple as

the lavender

until you decided your vibrant

red

didn’t mix well with

my dull shade of

blue.


THIS IS NOT AN ORDINARY POEM. 

Yup, that’s right, I decided to participate in No Love For Fatties’ Paint Chip Poetry challenge again.

This week’s paint chip colours were:

Sweet lavender, celestial skies, melodious

      1. I did have a great time doing it. Although I wrote all my poems in September and then organized it all into 5 weeks of posts. So next weekend is the last one. It was really fun! I might do it again in the new year? Possibly as an AtoZ challenge, but I’m not sure yet.
