C: Croodle #AtoZChallenge


Croodle: to cower or crouch down; to draw oneself together, as for warmth; to cling close together, or nestle close to a person; snuggle

In my cosmos

you were the sun the stars, the light, the dark

I clung to you

till your harsh words shattered my universe

Only I know

how your whirling disguise pierced my eyes

Blinded, I ran

 but my soul still croodles to the form of your body

Doodled in my heart.
