Melting Away

Posted on Jul 24, 2012


Like A lolly I’m
melting away
On this hot sticky
summers day

The temperature
rises, doesn’t lower
No escape from
from this tomorrow

Melting away like
the wicked witch
Wanna dive into
a pool I beseech

Another sleepless
night beckons
No dreams tonight
Awake I’ll be I reckon

For four months or so
it has been raining
But now the sun has
hit us hard, down beating

Oh for cooling rain
to melt away the heat
Maybe then I can
get some sleep
