Heartbreak in Autumn

Oh, heartbreak in Autumn

Seeking comfort in the leaves that have fallen

It was the end of my universe

Watching trees and the wind converse

My tears slowly came to halt

No longer could I taste trouble and salt

Crisp air soothed my soul

Atmospheric pigment removed my heart from parole

Early sunset kissed my cheek

The burden of heartache no longer made me weak

Only now the beauty of Autumn made me strong

Crunchy leaves chanted in song

My spirit is lifted

My attention shifted

Earth heard my cries

Earth dried my eyes

Autumn took control

Autumn performed CPR on an injured soul
