Purple (Daily Word Prompt – Purple)


the conniving actor
behind fresh bruises
inflicted by everyday
jealousies and egoisms,

the haughty girl
who performs as
the Sugar Plum Fairy to applause
but returns nightly to a wintry home,

the voluptuousness
in wild cherries
that ripen with
the sun’s persistence,

the “eat me”
message unfurled
with a bottle of
Dior’s Poison perfume,

the substance of ecstacy
and unnamed sympathizers
of hardships and
splintered romances,

the ornate gilding
and unnecessary
adornment in
one too many sentences,

the innocence
that springs forth
from the morning glory,
like a gay trumpeter
blaring its morning call…
