I cheated on sunshine today. She’s been away for a while now anyway.
Lately she’s just been … kinda cold.
I’ve missed her so … her warm rays touching my skin. Warming my bare legs and kissing my cheeks, shoulders and neck.
She was no good for me though, I was burned more than once.
I should have known.
I spent so many days in her embrace, lounging in her abundant attention. We beached, we floated the river, we visited amusement parks and we cruised the highway together.
I was true to her. I dared not enter the gym for months. I spent all of my free time encompassed within her rays.The time has come though, I had to go back. I was welcomed although my body protested to turn back time, back to our lazy summer affair.
I will mourn our breakup with leggings, boots and sweaters. I will try to find joy in the changing scenery. I will try not to notice how beautifully the reds, yellows and golden hues in the trees complement my still bronzed skin.
I will try not to mind the pumpkin spice in the air and the crisp coolness that makes bonfires so enticing.
I will try.
I will try not to miss sunshine until she comes back to me. After all it really is just a matter of time.
