My Love, My Rotting Leaves (round robin Mark & Cat)

My Love My Rotting Leaves (opening verses)
Submitted by mark on Sun, 2022-07-31 17:03

Apples are no treat for me
(or anyone really)
nothing to excite,
nothing like chocolate.

Chocolate for my cache
(a bag full)
on October 31
and Scarlet in her blue windbreaker.

Water towers reach high up
(and so did I)
behind her head for a hand
of fine blonde hair.

Oak trees all around the silver thing
with graffiti all over,
our name up there somewhere,
but the aroma of rotting leaves…

end Mark---------
start Cat--------

yes, our names up there, from where she fell
seeing her descent in slow motion
my eyes held her slim costumed body
as I dove into disbelief and shock's ocean

couldn't pull my eyes away from her small form
not breathing, so lifeless, how we all grieved
seeing her crumpled self, looking small,
we would remember rhe aroma of rotting leaves...

I wasn't expecting that but an awesome addition, Cat.
Good job!
