shelter in shadows

The sun glares burst out on my skin

The warmth makes me feel uneasy

The beam of light rests on my arm, singeing my hairs

Sweat drips down rapidly like a stream

Creating a puddle on the floor, rippling

Eyes blood shot, searching for shade

My fingers clench into fists

Knucles white, face red

I'm hot and restless

Burnt from head to toe

But I stay there still

Searching for escape

Hoping the shade will come soon

To wipe the sweat off my brow
