Sunrays

The sun rose with a vengeance this morning, stretching her fire into the blueness of the night until no trace of darkness was left. Her magnificent rise was a reminder that I had left him two cold nights ago, had taken the first flight home, running away from the sun the entire way back, trying to catch up with the hemisphere I'd left behind for too long. Life was waiting for me to return to reality. I left love behind on the top of the hill where I'd left him, surrounded by the chill of silence and an air heavy with loss and confusion.
