Mix-Up - Poem by Joyelle Osburn

I can't decide if you
are hidden within my thoughts
or stashed away deep
within the orifice of dreams.
Too much time goes by
before I taste the
warm rains of Heaven-
(there's still a drought)
I'll wrap myself in sepia tone-
confuse you into letting
me be your queen
of any day.

    It may seem that drought dries the heart, but it won't.
    Sepia...I like.
