Riley welch is a poet from texas living in colorado. She posts three original poems a week. 


And then I was hit by a wave
I was hit by a facade shattering wave
Sadness overtook me and the the spry sparse mist hit my soft cheeks like sprinkling tears
Decorating my face with a hint of red puffy eyes and sad turned lips

And I entered into a circle of melancholy blue
That matched the pattern of the wave that hit me

Its swirly misery dancing in shades on the side of the color wheel
Opposite of where I sat
Bright yellow hands folded in glee

Being pushed farther and farther.
Because of that wave.
