Thinks & Inks

By @astrid_hartman

Hopeless Romantic

The fog 

Smothers the trees

In a damp embrace, 

Hovering over them

Like an attentive partner. 

I shiver 

As I squint to see

Through my windshield,

The thin clouds

Wishing to envelope us as well. 

No offense, 

But I wish 

That fog wasn’t such 

A hopeless romantic.
