Waking Up.

Waking up this morning,
Gazing out the window,
into a pink and orange abyss.
A brand new day.

I wrap myself in the warmth
Of my housecoat,
Coat my throat with a tepid, fluid
Sip of freshly made coffee.

I reflect.

I feel so empty, 
So lonely,
so lost.

Where are you?

In the orange, I see my inner flame.
Anger fueled me to the core.
In the pink, I see my tired cheeks,
blushing more and more.

I’m running out of will,
To keep myself moving forward.
I need you.
I need my best friend.

It’s lonely on the outside,
When no one is concerned.
When your inner flame,
Leaves you feeling burned
