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.
