Friendly Nightshade

I am the warning sky before a thunderstorm

the lavender used to calm your senses.

I am the velvet robe of a wise king,

his amethyst crown stolen during the coup.

I am the blurred neon lights in the bar where you met your first love-

the merlot you drink to forget them.

I am the cold grape juice you'd drink on a hot summer day.

I am the calm of blue and the warmth of red.

I am the favorite dress you never wear.

I am the beautiful and deadly nightshade growing in your backyard.

I am the sky on the cusp of sunset and dusk;

the sky that quiets the loudest of minds.
