I tried to hide from your sharp, merciless flaming darts, dear sunshine, to no avail.
I longed to hug you, dear shade, I thought you were my haven; it was all wishful thinking.
I needed a hiding place where I would cool my wounded body.
You shunned and turned your back on me, dear shadow.
I cried out to you, dear refreshing breeze.
I yearned for your compassionate embrace.
You hid your face from me, lovely breeze.
I couldn’t find you, no matter how frantically I searched for you.
Oh dear me, I am melting and chocking from breathing this hot summer heat.
