Play and Read: One

Unexpected. Never asked for you to come into my life. I never even knew for sure who I should go to if I wanted to ask for you.
I haven’t clenched my palms and kneeled for years, haven’t put on a prayer dress or slip flower petals between my fingers. So who sent you? Who thought it would be a grand idea to insert you into my timeline of chaos?

Dusk blue. A shy, balmy shade. As if your colour is trying to hide behind a gossamer haze.
