Daily Prompt: Leaf

Love is like a crunchy leaf in the cooling temperatures of Fall

Hanging on for dear life wanting, needing, trying to muster the call

Suffering but gripping a branch in the powerful onslaught of relentless wind

Sometimes true love can hold on-but sometimes the leaves girth isn’t wide enough

As it loses its grip, the leaf, like love, dies and becomes part of the earth.
