Ode to a Hot Flash

Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?

I think not…summer is as winter compared to thee and thy way.

Morning dawns with thee…a heavy sear brands my heart;

How long shall it be ’til us do part?

The noon day sun glistens as ice over the sea;

as thy flame alone stokes, arising in me.

I have not yet found the cup that shall quench;

nor slightly soothe the scorch of thy strength!

Eve long endures, to suffer be my dwelling tent;

But lo, thou showest mercy to cease –  if only for a moment.

Softly, quiet,  night falls… slumber  escapes yet again;

Thy abrupt return as a flash – Woe, thou hinderest me to stand!

My threshold exceeds no better way than to abide;

From thee is nowhere to run, for certain nowhere to hide.

Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?

I think not – summer is as winter compared to thee and thy way.

Ode to a hot flash…
