Rose Tea This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

The days I succeed to drag my body
from my bedroom
are the days it rains heavily.

I awaken before noon, just as
the sky turns murky,
and brew my last cup of Rose Tea.
I fold my thick beige sweater across my body
my velvet chair rests nearby the window.
The rain approaches unexpectedly,
as always.
And I sit, knees to my chest as the first drops fall, and soon swarm the atmosphere.

Occasionally, I fantasize of dancing with the liquid clouds. But, I always seem to say maybe next time,

because I've only danced
with you

This is really good!
At first I thought it was just another description piece of a dark rainy day or something like that, but the end really pulls it all together and makes it a great piece!! :)
