I Saw Sadness

This poem is based on a writing prompt from "Dew's Poem Starters." It's called, "I Saw Sadness."

I saw sadness clearly.

She was long and thin.

She crept silently, slowly,

I saw her mahogany hair,

Got lost in the darkness of her black, black stare,

Her skin melded imperceptibly with the night

And they became as one.

I heard her husky, seductive whisper

And I felt myself gasping for air

As she devoured me.
